  • Milestone changed from None Set to 1.71
  • Owner set to charles
  • Status changed from new to assigned

Since qmake doesn't seem to play nicely with autoconf, I don't know of any way to make the qt directory's makefiles to know whether or not we're supposed to use the system copy of libevent or the bundled one.

So, if we have to pick one version or the other, IMO it makes the most sense to use the bundled one, since at least then we'll know that it will link properly, fixing the problem experienced here by helios91.

If anyone objects to this and wants to open a ticket like #2070 regarding libevent and the qt client... my qmake-fu isn't up to this, and it won't happen without a patch.
