Compile errors on SUSE 9.1 x86_64

Any time I am trying to compile a program that relies on KDE/QT on my new SUSE 9.1 x86_64 system I get one easy error and then I get a though one. The Easy one being:

[code:1]checking for Qt... configure: error: Qt (>= Qt 3.2) (library qt-mt) not found. Please check your installation!
For more details about this problem, look at the end of config.log.
Make sure that you have compiled Qt with thread support!

Which I fix by doing

[code:1]export QTDIR=/usr/lib/qt3/lib64[/code:1]

Is there anyway to have this assumed, so I don't have to keep re-typing it?

The tougher problem is how to fix what happens during the make portion:

[code:1]grep: /usr/lib/ No such file or directory
/usr/bin/sed: can't read /usr/lib/ No such file or directory
libtool: link: `/usr/lib/' is not a valid libtool archive

Since I am running a 64 bit system I would assume it should be looking for libs in /usr/lib64.... not /usr/lib... but where can I correct this?

My looks like so:


SUSE 9.1 is the best version of SUSE and one of the best distros I have every tried.... but not being able to compile things is starting to take it's toll on me... Any help would be greatly appreciated.
