I've tracked down similar failures to configure kde-software (on
slowlaris btw) and found that's nothing to do with qt per se. There
were bugs in the configure scripts: the test programs build by
configure got linked in such a way that they couldn't find libXext (or
some such) and failed.

hope this helps,
