I configured PyQt thus:

   ./configure --prefix=/usr \
                --infodir=/usr/share/info \
                --mandir=/usr/share/man \
                --with-doc-install=/usr/share/doc \
                --with-qt-dir=/usr/qt/3 \
                --with-qt-includes=/usr/qt/3/include \
                --with-qt-libraries=/usr/qt/3/lib \
                --with-x || die

and did make all, which resulted in:

make[3]: Entering directory `/var/tmp/portage/PyQt-3.0/work/PyQt-3.0/qt'
(cd /tmp;
/usr/bin/python -O -c "import qt") Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<string>", line 1, in ?
line 44, in ?    import libqtc
ImportError: libqt-mt.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file
or directory make[3]: *** [install-data-hook] Error 1

As far as I can figure, it should look for libqt-mt.so.3, which lives in
/usr/qt/3/lib, and not libqt-mt.so.2.

I also tried setting LDFLAGS="-L/usr/qt/3/lib" and
CXXFLAGS="-L/usr/qt/3/lib" to no avail.

Any ideas ?

Kind regards,

Karl T
