Hi Mark,

My guess is that Borland/Inprise/Embarcadero/whatever developers have
statically linked the Qt support routines.

KDE and Qt have changed out of sight in the 6 or 7 years since Kylix
was alive.  I will bet dollars to doughnuts that the old binaries will
not run on a modern KDE system, so the old Qt libraries were simply
incorporated statically into some new binaries.

Of course, I could be wrong. ... :-)

[BTW, how is your card game coming along?  Contact me off-list if you
want some interesting code.]
