I don't know what the deal is here. The correctly specifies that
uic-tqt should be installed:

        test -z "$(bindir)" || $(MKDIR_P) "$(DESTDIR)$(bindir)"
        cp -Rp "$(srcdir)/tqt-replace" "$(DESTDIR)$(bindir)/"
        cp -Rp "$(srcdir)/tqt-replace-stream" "$(DESTDIR)$(bindir)/"
        cp -Rp "$(srcdir)/moc-tqt" "$(DESTDIR)$(bindir)/"
        cp -Rp "$(srcdir)/uic-tqt" "$(DESTDIR)$(bindir)/"

but for some strange reason, uic-tqt is not installed with 'make install'. All
other files specified in 'install-exec-local:' get installed just fine, but not

I don't know when the uic-tqt script is created during the build processes, but
is it possible it gets created too late to be seen by the 'make install'?

As a workaround for the arch package, I have just manually included it to be
installed in /usr/bin (which from the looks correct)

After the workaround and install of the new tqtinterface package, arts
configures fine:

config.status: executing depfiles commands
config.status: executing libtool commands
configure: WARNING: unrecognized options: --with-xinerama

Good - your configure finished. Start make now

If Jay is seeing this behavior with uic-tqt on Slackware and I'm seeing it on
Arch, maybe the really smart devs can take a peek and see if a reason for this
behavior can be seen.

Also, let me know if this is something you want me to open a bug on. I'm happy
to do it, but I don't want to clutter the bug tracker if this isn't something
that needs to be there. Thanks.
