A "normal" Qt installation has the applications, header files and libraries 
installed under a common directory defined by the QTDIR environment variable. 
Your distro has split them.

Set QTDIR to the name of the directory that contains the "mkspecs" directory - 
this enables configure.py to find where everything else has been installed.
