Indeed, I had some permission issues. However this was just a user
error symptom of the larger problem where I didn't have QtCore_debug
installed. Its not a dependency of the etch libqt4-dev package. I
have to also have to install libqt4-debug
I think that the -w option is misnamed or at least not clear what it
does. It wasn't until I actually started going though the
configure.py source that I realized that -w was the verbose flag.
'Don't suppress compiler output' seemed like something that was going
to happen later on in the make step.
Once I enabled -w it was obvious. If nothing else I think you should
drop a note about the -w option when you get an error. Just like you
do with -q.
