Skype requires 32 bit [ just in case you are building a 64 bit system. ]
They don't give any information about the software requirements other 
than QT.

It looks like skype isn't finding the library path, if you used a 
different path then you'll need to create a symlink to the librarys for 
[ yes, they are a MS based company, they hard code include paths rather 
than use enviroment variables. ]
