I figured out what the problem was. 

I forgot to install the qt development package. 

Install qt-devel-1:3.3.8-4.fc7.i386. You might also want to install

Also remember to Set QTDIR to the qt directory 
i.e. export QTDIR=/usr/lib/qt-3.3/

So if you get the error below, install the qt development package.

Subject: [mythtv-users] SVN Trunk compile error

I am attempting to compile mythtv SVN trunk. When I run “configure” I am
getting the error: 

“QMAKESPEC has not been set, so configuration cannot be deduced.”

Could anyone tell me what I overlooked?
