Leo knows this already from discussion on the plplot-devel list, but just to
clear this up for the rest of you, Qt is available in SDK (binary
development version that requires no compilation) form at
http://qt.nokia.com/downloads for Linux (both 32-bit and 64-bit versions),
Windows (compatible with MinGW but not proprietary windows compilers), and
Mac OS X. It's a fairly big download (0.5GB), and the uncompressed installed
version takes up something like 1 GB of disk space, but bandwidth should not
be an issue for most of you (unless you are using a slow phone modem), and
neither should disk space for modern computers. I typically do a download
and installation of the Qt Linux 64-bit version in just a few minutes.
