Re: qt4: make FHS-friendly (bug #196901)

QTDIR,QTLIB,QTINC are qt3 constructs, not used in qt4 at all. qt4 apps (mostly) use pkg-config to query this type of thing.

But the qt4 heirarchy (%_libdir/qt) will still exist, containing other arch-specific bits (binaries, plugins, etc...)

This arrangement doesn't preclude having another parallel-installable qt4 somewhere else, but that's not ever much of a concern/priority, imo.

How about another parallel installable _other_ version of Qt? e.g.
Qt 3.x, Qt 2.x. What about namespace clashes?

It's certainly still installable along-side qt(3). I wouldn't have tried this if it weren't.
