Ouch.  A full qt3 install huh?.  Qt/X11 is the only one that is release under 
the GPL Qt/Win32 and Qt/Mac come from different codebases that are not GPL.  
If we were to use qmake we would have to build it out of the Qt/X11 codebase 
under cygwin to get a qmake.exe? Is that even supported/does it work?  To me 
this point towards cmake or some homegrown solution ala crystalspace etc.   
Should I make the rest of the cmake files for blender?  Did anybody try the 
ones I sent out earlier?  Are we heading in the right direction?
