tqtinterface - configure fails

Hi all,

I'm very new here and to Trinity so please be gentle, this is my first
attempt :-)

I'm attempting a build for Mandriva 2010.1 and by a long winded-process of
'hit and miss' I've managed to get .configure to run to completion except
for the following warning message regarding 'libtqtinterface-dev' needing
to be installed:

==== Caution wrapped ====
checking if TQt is available... no
configure: WARNING: You are attempting to compile Trinity without the
Trinity Qt Interface installed.  Please install libtqtinterface-dev and
try again!

Ignoring this message and calling 'make' appears to complete
correctly, however 'make install' returns the following:
failure as follows:

=====Caution may wrap ====

I'm somewhat confused by the missing(?)  `.libs/' message which is
correct when one looks in the referenced directory.  Where does the ".2.0" come
from? What do I do to fix this?


[root@john john]# locate libtqt
