Why did you compile Qt form source? Didn't you have it already installed?
I think it's better to use the system Qt and install the missing developer 
package if needed. 
You have to be sure to provide the correct version of Qt at runtime if you want 
to use your own package.
To verify that you may use "ldd /path/to/lyx" to check what Qt-libraries are 
linked at run time. 
Perhaps you have to adjust your LD_LIBRARY_PATH variable accordingly.
