The best thing is: I'm trying to compile it on a fresh and clean
installation. I don't have Qt4 installed. And I compiled tqt against
qt3. Yet, autotools detect TQt4 and searches for QT4...

I don't remember ATM exactly where I've seen them, but I think it was
in file. Besides there are a awful lot references to
KDE3 and it's latest version (3.5.10) in variables, version numbers
and so on. Yet those files are too many, and to big to go through them
and change everything. And it can't be really done by script since, it
could broke something.

I'd like to see it happen now, or for the next release. Faster
cleaning begins, the better.
