aloha Dago

well now i'm a bit confused.  i was(am) trying to compile locally, not on or
for opencsw, qucs-0.0.19 (Quite Universal Circuit Simulator) and while it is
mostly qt4 there are some dependencies still on the qt4-q3support library
(-lQt3Support) and the associated include files (-I$QT4_PATH/Qt3Support).

oh dago after re-re-re-reading the message i think the message is partly
directed at me and also partly at peter or (current) qt4 maintainer.

with respect to qt4, i've looked at trying to build it (qt4) here locally,
a daunting task it seems especially on my antique hardware. and i've never
attempted to get gar installed and functional so it would be a configure
build in any case with opencsw gcc/g++ 4.9.0.

with respect to a 'respin' i'm thinking the changed configure option for the
existing package is either a) deleting the -no-qt3support as the default is
-qt3support or b) explicitly adding -qt3support.

whether this will be a trivial respin without headache is doubtful, as there
must have been a valid reason to override the -qt3support default.  in addition
there will probably be a bit of additional gar configuration needed to package
up the Qt3Support library, include files and anything else that implement
the qt3 support stuff.

thanks for you help
