All good. I just had to find what needed adjusting. Just frustrating doing the 2
steps forward 3 steps back dance when expecting to be able to move 2 steps
forward in the few hours available.

If the changes help the majority, then they are good changes. If they can be
made without impact to any -- even better. After the issue was found, I see how
the problem was created, but I still don't understand why anybody would want a
lib64 directory hanging out under the tqt3 directory. I can't see anybody ever
having both a 32-bit and 64-bit version of TQt3 installed at the same time.

By my reading of FHS, that is the only reason you would every want the
/lib<alternate> format to be used in the first place. However, if installing in
/usr and your distro is one that uses /lib64 for libs in general on 64 bit
installs, I can see wanting everything to end up in the same directory, but for
installs in /opt, I just think it makes the directory look a lot messier to have
lib64 hanging around.
