Yeah, I've got a shopping list of known issues that I'm working through
(see README) to get to a kmchart 1.0 release, where I'll make packages
available (rpms and MacOSX packages planned).

No, I switched from QT3 recently, QT4 is required (they are completely

Yep. Go for QT4.2 at least - I believe (from Kens laptop) that Fedora
is up to QT4.3 now (they will have both QT4 and QT3 packages, since the
two are so different). I switched to QT4 relatively recently, in order
to get the Intel Mac support, better looking widgets on Linux (plus a
host of other little benefits, like clear code from QtDesigner).
I also ended up creating a local QWT library and QMC library (based on
PMC) due to the plethora of build issues I had on my Mac (MacOSX has
this unusual "Framework" concept, which is "more than a shared lib",
and since Qt knows how to build these things, I took the local-copy
route. This has the advantage now that the only build and runtime
dependency is QT4 (and PCP, of course).
