Yes, still needed, because it looks wrong for the headers files.

I dont know what QT4_MOC means but it works that way.

Take a look to this thread
Maciej (the old manteiner of the packages) tryed but without success to
export QTINC="/usr/include"
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH="$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:/usr/include"
He ended patching the sources changing
#include <QtDesigner/QDesignerCustomWidgetInterface>
#include <QDesignerCustomWidgetInterface>

So i figured out that adding "/usr/include" to SHCXXFLAGS and QT4_MOC works.

We should find a way to do it right (TM)

Yes. Its not explicit in the dependences but the meta package
base-devel (with gcc, fakeroot,
pkg-config) its a must when you use the AUR repositories (its in the
AUR guide). So it should be
using pkg-config and it doesnt find QTDIR. Withoud using pkg-config
CLAM doesnt build because
it cant find libxml++-2.6 (something like
/usr/include/libxml++/libxml++.h and not
