when i compiled qt the current wisdom was to just comment out the 
ifdef's around include <winsock.h>
now i know that that is not enough

i have to say, and i'm sure that you will agree, that building qt is the 
hardest part of this whole process
it is also huge
i will have a look and see how gentoo builds and packages it to see if i 
can automate the process of building and packaging it up
i suspect i could get it down to (say) 50MB which is a lot better that 
the 600 it now is.

thanks for all the help
