Just to clarify: you must patch your pkgsrc/x11/qt3-libs first.

Anyways, I tested this buildlink3 and it worked for me under Linux and
under NetBSD.

It already partially worked for me under Linux using LOCALBASE as /usr.
But my problem was that some libraries couldn't see some X11R6 shared
libraries used by them. This improved patch fixes it for me.

Under NetBSD, I was able to build qt3-tools (also using USE_BUILDLINK3=yes
and .include "../../x11/qt3-libs/"), lyx-qt and wip/qhacc.
(It appears that qt3-libs is not buildlinked for lyx-qt though.)
