sqlite and Qt

Hi Adam,

please keep the discussion on the macports-users list, so other are  
able to contribute to the issue as well.

To all: the problem is, that for Adam using the Qt4 SQlite support  
works when Qt4 is compiled with its internal sqlite library, but not  
when he uses the system (MacPorts) sqlite3, what the Portfile does.

Well, that is not a very useful error message;) Which program does  
generate this message?
Can you tell Qt4 to give some more detailed pieces of information  
about the problem?

What kind of file is this exactly, i.e., by what version of sqlite  
was it generated?

Is that the command-line version of sqlite from MacPorts?

If this is not a sqlite problem, I presume it is a problem of dynamic  

What does otool say about the Qt4 plugin?
 > otool -L /opt/local/lib/qt4-plugins/sqldrivers/libqsqlite.dylib
         libqsqlite.dylib (compatibility version 0.0.0, current  
version 0.0.0)
         /opt/local/lib/libsqlite3.0.dylib (compatibility version  
9.0.0, current version 9.6.0)
         /opt/local/lib/libQtSql.4.dylib (compatibility version  
4.3.0, current version 4.3.2)
         /opt/local/lib/libQtCore.4.dylib (compatibility version  
4.3.0, current version 4.3.2)
         /opt/local/lib/libz.1.dylib (compatibility version 1.0.0,  
current version 1.2.3)
         /usr/lib/libSystem.B.dylib (compatibility version 1.0.0,  
current version 88.3.9)
         /opt/local/lib/libiconv.2.dylib (compatibility version  
7.0.0, current version 7.0.0)
Versions/A/ApplicationServices (compatibility version 1.0.0, current  
version 22.0.0)
         /usr/lib/libstdc++.6.dylib (compatibility version 7.0.0,  
current version 7.4.0)
         /usr/lib/libgcc_s.1.dylib (compatibility version 1.0.0,  
current version 1.0.0)

If you have the same as me, does it help to say
   sudo install_name_tool -id /opt/local/lib/qt4-plugins/sqldrivers/ 
libqsqlite.dylib \
on e command-line? What does otool now give you?

I assume the first two are identical (-system-sqlite apparently  
overwrites -qt-sql-sqlite). Specifying both does not make sense,  

I would prefer to use the system-libraries in Qt4, as otherwise we  
have at least two version of the same library installed on the  
system, like you have now (MacPorts sqlite3 + Qt4 sqlite)

Well, let's see where above points get us...
