Starting with Qt3 3.3.8.d, dbus-qt3 is obsolete. Use that package only when building KDE3 against the original Qt3 3.3.8.b.

I don't know the technical differences, but I was told one is the original Qt3 bindings and the other is back ported bindings from Qt4. I submitted bug report 571 asking that the names of one or the other be changed to help clarify purpose. Such as dbus-qt3-tqt and dbus-qt4-tqt. Perhaps dbus-tqt3 and dbus-tqt4.

Regardless, I build both dbus-tqt and dbus-1-tqt with no problems.
