how to find a missing symbol??

Via "my way" I upgraded from 8.0 -> 8.1. I have now a yast2 that reports the
following error:
/usr/lib/YaST2/bin/y2controlcenter: relocation error:
/usr/lib/YaST2/bin/y2controlcenter: undefined symbol: __ti7QWidget

As I'm just interested how to debug this, I would appreciate some hints as I
do not come to the cause of the problems. Perhaps some of you can help?

This is what I figured out sofar:

From the above error I figure out it is a QT problem.
Does yast2 (y2controlcenter) use QT? Yes it does see below;

# objdump -p /usr/lib/YaST2/bin/y2controlcenter

/usr/lib/YaST2/bin/y2controlcenter: file format elf32-i386

Alright lib is there.

I believe that nm should display the symbols in the lib. Let's try it:
# nm /usr/lib/qt-3.0.5/lib/
nm: /usr/lib/qt-3.0.5/lib/ no symbols

Now I'm stuck. How to continue or were to start from??
