Hi Clint,

Are you saying that I should manually set the variables you listed? I've never had to do that before.

Are you saying that the files to which these programs point are missing? They are not. I compared the Qt directory on the system where the failure occurs to the same directory on another system, and it seems that everything is there. In particular I verified that the files to which your variables point on the working installation are present on the system that is failing.

By the way, the failures occur using Qt 4.4.0 and cmake 2.6.0.
