Hi

I have thought of this more than once, but it has mostly stalled for various 
reasons (beside the time involved in doing it)

1) qt4-x11 source package is already a buildd killer (both in time and space 
usage, 3-4 days of build time, more than 4G of space)
2) for most real usages of Qt/linuxfb, you would want a specific feature set 
that you actually need, and then need to recompile anyways

and the most important one
3) qt/linuxfb is not binary compatible with qt/x11, so for all relevant 
libraries and applications, we would also need to do two build passes, one for 
the linux stuff and one for x11, making it not really that interesting.

The api is the same, so you can still, in 99.5 or so of the cases do the 
development against qt/x11 and just deploy it against qt/Linuxfb
