Comment 1 Kevin Kofler 2011-07-02 09:28:49 EDT
The binaries are in /usr/bin with a -qt4 suffix, as in many other distributions. The binary names without -qt3 suffix are reserved by Qt 3. Upstream software MUST look for -qt4 suffixed binaries first.

As a workaround, the PATH can be set to include /usr/lib/qt4/bin resp. /usr/lib64/qt4/bin for the software to find the binaries, but really the upstream software should be fixed to look for qmake-qt4 etc.
