Right here was where I had problems. Qith QTDIR set to qt-1.x I couldn't
compile qt-2.x. It died saying it couldn't find qt. With KDEDIR set to
KDE2 the KDE packages barfed a lung. I didn't want to be using or firing
a script to switch them back and forth all the time. That's why I stripped
KDE and Qt-1.x

Athiests believe they know there is no god.
Agnostics know they believe there is no god.
Thiests believe there is a god.
Christians believe in God through His Son, Jesus Christ.
