I had problems to install qt4 in the past when I set the PATH in my
root shell so some references to the build directory were then created
during the relinking of the libraries in the installation step.

That only happend with some qt4-* packages. No other packages had
problems with setting the PATH for root.

So is ENV enough which has to be cleared and in which step should that
be done?
