It depends whether they are targetting a particular Qt version (choose the SDK 
or a tarball of binaries, no matter what the distros provide. "We use Qt 4.6.2 
because all later versions have 'bugs' and our app doesn't work") or 
targetting the distro ("The program must work on Ubuntu 12.04 and Fedora 14").
