     I'll give it a go. I'm completely new to solving cmake problems, so I need 
to make friend with ccmake.

     Also, it was just suggested on the trinity list to try building in a 
virtual machine or in a chroot to try and get around the potential for Qt4 uic 

	I know virtualbox, but would it be easier to try to build in a chroot? I can 
chroot my OS to get around kernel failures, etc.., but I have 'zero' experience 
setting one up for building packages. Looking around, it looks like I can either 
use chroot, schroot, or mkarchroot. But without any experience with them, I 
don't know which path to go down first. So you have any guidance on the following:

(1) use vbox?


(2) use a chroot?

   -- if so, what's the best tool for a project like packaging Trinity? chroot, 
schroot, mkarchroot?

   -- also, if a chroot is best, any favorite links for configuring it?

Thanks Ray!
