IIRC the QT docs suggested using ld.so.conf for a permanent solution. 
 The LD_LIBRARY_PATH is only for development.  In general, it is not 
recommended for normal use in any application.

I probably didn't need -accel-mach64, but it didn't look like it hurt 

If you put qt in someplace other where apps that use it normally find 
it, everytime you do an install, you have to define where the headers 
and libraries are.  The alternative is to move them, but that can be 
tricky with qt.  I wish they had a standard make install.
