This is strange: as you mentioned in the next mail, there was almost
nothing to port in /src/math, but the only thing I've done was to copy
/src/math from svn (~ rev. 550 ?), and try to compile them only with Qt.

Actually I was following Qt4's testing tutorial. I've generated a project
and makefile with qmake-qt4, so it didn't include any KDE stuff. That's
why I've got the error. I want to create tests using qt's infrastructure,
as it looks really nice and simple.
Thank you for cmake files, as those are a bit complicated for me, yet.
I'll check out all the repositories and make something working, probabily
