Normally setting QTDIR during the build is enough, no entry in /etc/ 
or setting LD_LIBRARY_PATH or setting LDFLAGS manually is necessary.

But I have had such failures since building kde (even before version 3.5.6) 
from blfs.
Could this be because of ./configure --enable-new-ldflags ? It 
adds  -Wl,--as-needed -Wl,--enable-new-dtags to the LDFLAGS.
This isn't in the book, but maybe Andrey enabled it? I did :-)

The same for me.

Good luck
