I had a quick look.  I don't get any complaints about RPATH, what did you run
to see that?

(I should probably mention that I'm on an x86_64 system, not sure if that
makes a difference though.)

Yes, that's the one.  The only result I get is from fqterm.bin.  It looks like
it contains references to the location of the source files used during the
build.  My uninformed guess is that it's related to some event mechanism
(close by are strings like "httpDone", "windowmgr.currentChanged"...).  I
don't program much in C++, and I haven't used QT since about KDE 0.2 time, but
my guess would be that these references to $srcdir are harmless.
