Well, no. VirtualBox's configure has a weird behaviour regarding qt. It does 
not find qt3 automatically, even though it searches the right paths, so I 
have to specify the qt3-install-directory with --with-qt-dir. For some 
reason, if I use that method it does then not find qt4 either, which is why I 
have to use a similar method for qt4 too.
However, if only qt4 is requested, configure has no problems with finding it 
automatically. Unfortunately this reveals a bug I haven't thought of before, 
as one can't disable both qt3 and qt4 at the same time. I will resolve this 
as soon as possible.
