Thanks Eliot.  The package works with the current Qt libs so I'm working 
under the assumption that the Qt version is Ok.

I've figured out that if -DQT_NO_CAST_FROM_ASCII and 
-DQT_NO_CAST_TO_ASCII are removed from the compile directives, the 
situation improves drastically (at least on the first file I tried to 
compile manually, the number of compile errors goes from dozens to 
zero).  But, I don't know why Cmake is adding those directives.
