Install the dependencies
Note: qt 4.3 is needed!
Note: Make sure you have sqlite and/ or sqlite3 in your USE flags in /etc/make.conf, if you haven't emerged qt4 with these before, you need to reemerge it.
emerge dev-libs/boost media-libs/speex x11-libs/libXevie x11-libs/qt (See Note)
For Debian / Ubuntu
apt-get install qt4-dev-tools libqt4-dev libspeex1 libspeex-dev libboost-dev libasound2-dev libxevie-dev libxevie1 g++
It's recommended to remove the package qt3-dev-tools if installed.
