For some reason the e-mail got mangled, the command above is all in one line, so
the env vars get passed to config:
./configure --enable-poppler-qt4 POPPLER_QT4_CXXFLAGS=-I/c/Qt/4.6.2/include
(BTW I first tried setting them in bash with export before calling configure,
but that didn't work either, it gives the same error)
From config.log this is what configure sees:
$ ./configure --enable-poppler-qt4 POPPLER_QT4_CXXFLAGS=-I/c/Qt/4.6.2/include
and further from config.log:
so it would appear that configure has seen the variables. config.log is rather
large, but I can post it if that will be any help.
It seems to be (I understand very little of autoconf/automake et all) that there
is something else needed, another variable that needs setting, so that
configure can find Qt4, but I can't figure out what is missing from the
information I have found.

I am not able to switch that off, our notes server attaches it. I have changed
to using my yahoo e-mail to stop that from happening.
