Yeah, that too. :-) Although I have a basic shell script to perform TQt stripping, which I use to help me identify differences from 3.5.10 for debugging purposes, the script is not robust or 100% dependable. Further, if 3.5.10 did build correctly, that would not necessarily identify the TQt layer as the culprit. :-(
