Many thanks for the help Robert!
Ok, now I finally have a coherent set of patches. Many of them are just for 
specific builds, but it seems to me that some should be included in the main 
tree. Anyway, I don't know the codebase enough. :) 

Just 2 questions left:
- are the translations in qt3-3.3.8b-translations still good for 3.3.8d?
- it seems that the patch gcc46.diff is only halfway applied in the tarball of 
3.3.8d. The part which includes <cstddef> is there, but the part wich converts 
ptrdiff_t into std::ptrdiff_t is not. I'd keep the patch cutting away the 
first part, ok?

Tomorrow I will try to get a set of successful OBS builds, let's start 
populating that repo. :)
