Put TQt3 in its own directory, e.g. on Debian the tqt3 include files live
in /usr/include/tqt3 while the stock qt3 include files live in

TQt3 allows you to build the languange bindings for Perl, Python, etc. and
will allow the usage of Qt4 libraries in TDE apps.  Sticking with Qt3 only
is a dead end, and you will need to upgrade sooner or later (or miss out
on some new TDE features).
