I didn't descript my question clearly. My question is, in another way, following.
The file qt-sdk-linux-x86-opensource-2009.02.bin can run any platform,  such as redhat5, redhat6, ubuntu12, and so on. How does it can do that?

I'm not sure I understand your question. Do you want to create a binary using the Qt libs that can be downloaded and executed on a lot of distributions & versions? Then you've several options:

- compile against LSB SDK 4.1 , which however still supports only Qt 4.2 (pretty outdated). It also requires your users to install the lsb package.
- use the Qt version of your choice (e.g. Qt 4.8), but ship the libraries yourself. To minimize external dependencies from the Qt libraries I'd suggest using the binary builds of Qt provided by the qt-project instead, which have been configured to be portable.

Anyway, it seems your question would have been better asked in qt-interest at qt-project.org, since this list is about the development _of_ Qt, not development _with_ Qt.
