And a little remark.
Pkgconfig is a great development tool and also it is a way to make build  
dependencies cross-distributive. F.e. you can find and require to build  
qt-devel, qtXY-devel, lib64qt4-devel or libqt4-devel package or just set  
pkgconfig(QtCore): http://pkgs.org/search/?keyword=pkgconfig(QtCore)
