Because you are searching for the wrong thing. -l is a command line
parameter, what follows -l is part of the actual lib name. A find / -name
'libmyth-0.20.1*' would have a chance to find it.

Unless by no feedback you mean "command not found" you have qmake and the no
feedback you are seeing is actually it dutifully generating a Makefile from
the .pro file in your current working directory. If you didn't have qmake
you would have failed much earlier.
