In addition to explicitly adding the includes as in my other post, you 
might check that you are using the qt4 qmake.

Find qmake in /usr/bin, rename it and do

ln -s /usr/bin/qmake-qt4 /usr/bin/qmake

This SHOULD already be done, but...YMMV.


         Please let me know if anything I say offends you.
          I may wish to offend you again in the future.
