[mythtv] More compiling errors on Mandrake 9...

I continue to get the qmake error...

After I open a new termincal window, and I type "set" <ENTER>, the
PATH=/usr/lib/qt3/bin variable is almost never there...If I then enter
the command directly (export PATH=$PATH:/usr/lib/qt3/bin) It shows up in
the set <ENTER> listing.

When I attempt to make MythTV, it gets through almost everything before
giving this error:

/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lXext
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make[2]: *** [libmyth-0.7.so.0.7.0] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/pvr/Documents/mythtv-0.7/libs/libmyth'
make[1]: *** [sub-libmyth] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/pvr/Documents/mythtv-0.7/libs'
make: *** [sub-libs] Error 2
[root@localhost mythtv-0.7]#

When I try to make install, I get this:

cd filters && qmake -o Makefile
/bin/sh: line 1: qmake: command not found
make: *** [filters/Makefile] Error 127
[root@localhost mythtv-0.7]#

I've been following the How-Tos word for word, and even made sure to
install perl-devel which isn't required by the How-Tos. What else could
I be missing here?
