Building arts with automake fails (looking for qt uic)

After failing to build arts with cmake, I tried again with automake. Yes, I know the move is toward cmake, but automake remains supported.

I received the following errors:

checking for uic-tqt... not found
configure: WARNING: No Qt ui compiler (uic) found!
Please check whether you installed Qt correctly.
You need to have a running uic binary.
configure tried to run  and the test didn't
succeed. If configure shouldn't have tried this one, set
the environment variable UIC to the right one before running

make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found.  Stop.

How to fix?

I rebuilt and installed qt3 with the 3.3.8c patch. Oddly, when I compared the 3.3.8b and 3.3.8c packages, only the directory names were different. Were any qt3 files in the 3.3.8c package changed, or was the patch needed only to build qt3 with the latest tqtinterface?
