Backtrace of a debug build would help us enormously, but why don't you sue 
some slightly older, but ready to be used debian packages. Compiling the 
stuff yourself is doable, but requires some distribution specific knowledge 
of these package builds. Generally, build from tar balls requires you to be 
even more sensible about what is installed with the rest of the system, 
e.g.: probably you have two Qt4 libs installed now in different paths: 
perfect recipe for hard to track down disaster..
If you still want to build the stuff, build deb packages, based on already 
available ones. You will learn a lot from that task, and it will pay off on 
the second install (on a hopefully similar system to the build host).

Good luck,

No: I don't have/use any debs handy since I'm addicted to rpms. You will 
imagine why, when you start building debs on your own..
