Of course in case of qtractor, where nobody is calling qmake manually, this works, too. Configure then behaves just like with QTDIR=/usr/share/qt4 exported and make will call the *-qt4 executables. Not so different from your distro, is it?

Anyway, despite of the somewhat stressful attitude in this thread, qtractor looks nice. - Apr 17 2007
Hi, it's not "braindead broken" it's just a way of having qt3 and qt4 coexist in the FHS.

You just need to adjust debians "alternatives" system (man update-alternatives) or, if you still compile against qt3 more often, set some environment variables in the shell, you use to build the qt4 program:
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH
export PATH=/usr/share/qt4/bin:$PATH
export QTDIR=/usr/share/qt4
export QT_PLUGIN_PATH=/usr/share/qt4/plugins
unset XDG_CONFIG_DIRS
unset XDG_DATA_DIRS - Apr 15 2007
