[mythtv] Another build error with current CVS

I commented out the X11 setting in settings.pro (not needed on my
system anyways since X is in a standard location).  That got me
further, but the build dies in libs/libmythtv:

/bin/sh: -c: line 1: syntax error near unexpected token `('
/bin/sh: -c: line 1: `g++ -c -pipe -Wall -W -g (freetype-config --cflags) -D_REENTRANT -fPIC  -D_GNU_SOURCE -D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64 -DPREFIX=\"/usr/local\" -DMMX -DQT_THREAD_SUPPORT -I/usr/lib/qt-3.1/mkspecs/default -I. -I/usr/local/include -I../.. -I../libmyth -I.. -Idvbdev -Impeg -I../libavcodec -I../libmythmpeg2 -I/usr/lib/qt-3.1/include -o cc.o vbitext/cc.cpp'
make[2]: *** [cc.o] Error 2
make[2]: Leaving directory `/root/mythtv/mythtv-cvs/mythtv/libs/libmythtv'

This seems to be a problem with the $$system(...) directive in the
libmythtv.pro.  Is there some way you could modify the configure
script to create these directives instead of using qmake?  In
particular the $$system() directive would seem simple to do from
configure (the $$join() in settings.pro might be more challenging).

Is Qt3.1 support just dead?  Or am I just the unlucky one trying to
test Qt3.1 support before 0.17 is released?
