No. We tested it today in a FC6 and it works just by defining QTDIR=/usr.
Yes, at last we have a FC to test on!

Don't get messed with /usr/include/Qt. It is like /usr/include/QtCore. I mean, 
in debian the same dir is at /usr/include/qt4/Qt. You don't have to specify 
it anywhere.

In summary: Annotator and NetworkEditor need QTDIR=/usr but CLAM and SMSTools 
need QTDIR=/usr/lib/qt3.3 and that should be all.

So, is there something like debian's 'build-essential' package that depends on 
all those implicit build system packages?

Besides that, i would like to ask you whether you have any experience 
using 'mock/match'' to build rpms? For 'deb's we use something similar 
named 'pbuilder', and it is very handy as it allows to build packages for 
several flavors of Debian and Ubuntu without rebooting by using a chroot 
environment. It also detects any missing build dependency in a given flavor. 
The nicest thing is that all the flavors can be launched at once by a single

I would like to have a similar script for rpm based distros, such as Fedora 
and SuSe, by using mock (or mach?). Mock is available as package on 
Debian/Ubuntu, but i couldn't manage to make it run due to badly packaged 
python dependencies. So, as a first step I'll try to get it working on 

Maybe, if you are familiar with such tool, you could give me some hints or 
point me to the proper documentation. Google is not that much help. And the 
man page lacks some working recipes.

I tried:
$ mock -r fedora-6-i386-core init
But it just hangs up while the script runs the command

/usr/sbin/mock-helper yum --installroot /var/lib/mock/fedora-6-i386-core/root 
install buildsys-build

Any hint?
