excuse me :)

qtchooser, and thus the QT_SELECT switch, is probably a debian exclusive 
thing, meaning that it's specific to some debian packaging policy, 
organization and whatever--it is NOT a Qt thing and might not apply to 
other distros or environments so easily, mainly because there's no 
qtchooser package installed nor even available.
