Thus my qt3 build script installs The name of the script is less important except as a guide to the purpose. As long as the script is executable the contents executes the same.

Therefore the (T)Qt3 bin files all install to /opt/trinity/bin and I don't have to create any sym links in /opt/trinity/bin to find those bin files. Likewise for all of the (T)Qt3 lib and include files --- no weird deeply embedded directories, just the normal /opt/trinity/lib and /opt/trinity/include. Much simpler.

  Excellent. That is exactly what I needed to know. Arch has no TQt3 build
script, so I'm just cannibalizing the Qt3 build script. I'll kick off the build
in the next few minutes and see if I get the same non-fatal warnings you are seeing.
