I think I'll add it either to the dist or on the homepage.
What would you prefer?

Qucs currently is using Qt3. There is one developer working
to port it to Qt4...
I think the widget set Qt3 uses under MacOS depends how it is

I also CC this mail to Markus and Rolf. They can probably say
more about it.
