Basically, you package everything you need, Certainly all the Qt
you use, but also other libraries, we're not using the system Qt. It
doesn't solve everything: the gstreamer problem I mentioned above was
because we didn't want to package gstreamer as well, and the gstreamer on
ubuntu and gstreamer on OpenSUSE weren't binary compatible, so when we
packaged the Qt Phonon library, which uses gstreamer, we had problems. (Of
course, Phonon couldn't play mp3's on XP, but could play wav's while it
was the other way around on Vista.)
The set of libraries we package is almost the same on Windows, OSX and
Linux, by the way. On Windows we have to package the c runtime, as well,
that is the main difference.
