They look complete, but I won't be absolutely certain until I do a full
comparison between my personal Qt and the copy in trunk, to sort out all
the changes I made. In retrospect, I wish I'd imported Qt3 to a version
control system before starting to mess with it, since my changes are hard
to separate - sorry about this.

IIRC it's just a symlink, so it should be harmless, but it can also wait.

This stuff I borrowed from Fedora's Qt, and is therefore "experimental". The
changes to the GL patch make sense, but are more or less untested (so -5
stuff). The gcc4 build patch was added for reasons of "we'll probably need
that when the transition occurs." Not yet having tried to build Qt with
gcc4, I can't say whether it really is required or not.

The libfreetype6-dev change is just to ensure that we and our users dodge
bug #316031. 2.1.10 is now built on all arches in Sid, so it's not really
required. The image plug-in change was a little capricious, I admit, and
I've since left mng as a plug-in, since it's rarely used compared to jpeg.
Seems like the usual memory vs. performance trade-off.

Nothing builds against these, so I felt it was time to clean up. This might
be a change to publicly announce/RFC beforehand, though, so if people
object we can reassess the situation.

Sounds good; thanks a lot for handling all this.
