Build a package that builds and installs shared libaries and that generates
the Makefiles with qmake.  Have it generate a shared library of the form
.so.major.minor.tiny.  Watch how a "make install" doesn't install the
.so.major.minor.tiny file and just installs symlinks pointing to a
non-existing file.

Not that qt3-tools although updated to QT 3.3.4 still uses the same
qmake.conf file as the 3.3.3 version.

build security/libfwbuilder and look at the commands being executed.

Dunno.  I don't know qmake enough.
