I'm not familiar with Mandriva, but the steps you're following seem to
be the same as I have to do with Gentoo.  Presumably you have both QT3
and QT4 installed, in which case /usr/bin/qmake will be the QT4 version
(qmake -v will tell you the version and what libraries it's using).  The
problem being that MythTV won't compile against QT4 (it gets quite a way
but falls over eventually).  If you've run a compile with the QT4
version of qmake, then you'll need to do a 'make distclean' and start
again, otherwise the Makefiles aren't regenerated and still point to the
QT4 directories.  So, the process should be to set the PATH and QTDIR
variables to point to the QT3 location, do a 'make distclean', then
configure and make as normal.
