install the qt package.. i mean the whole qt package.. (like 400 mb) http://bit.ly/oXCZzL.. the installation should take about 1 hour or more.. then install libqt4-dev package and ur done :)

It found qt3 instwad of qt4. Both was installed. Uninstalling qt4
solved the issue.

Shoukd it know what version to look for?

u should install qt4 (im using this one http://bit.ly/rbhJ4q).. but if qt3 worked for you.. no problem then =).. if you later have problems with capybara-webkit.. stick with qt4 then..

I guess I was not clear. Both versions of QT was installed. QT3 and QT4.

It was getting QT3 as default. Anyway, my problem is solved!

Had the same issue on Ubuntu and solved just by installing libqt4-dev. Interestingly enough, there was no error output at all and no log about what would fail. All I could see was

Gem::Installer::ExtensionBuildError: ERROR: Failed to build gem native extension.
    /home/eric/.rvm/rubies/ree-1.8.7-2011.03/bin/ruby extconf.rb 
Gem files will remain installed in /home/eric/.rvm/gems/ree-1.8.7-2011.03@leweb/gems/capybara-webkit-0.7.2 for inspection.
Results logged to /home/eric/.rvm/gems/ree-1.8.7-2011.03@leweb/gems/capybara-webkit-0.7.2/./gem_make.out

And the gem_make.out file contained just the line:

/home/eric/.rvm/rubies/ree-1.8.7-2011.03/bin/ruby extconf.rb

sudo apt-get install libqt4-dev fixes the issue, but I believe better error should be shown.

libqt4-dev

fixed for me as well

Under Ubuntu, it's not really necessary to uninstall conflicting version of libqt. You can do

$ sudo update-alternatives --config qmake
There are 2 choices for the alternative qmake (providing /usr/bin/qmake).

  Selection    Path                Priority   Status
------------------------------------------------------------
  0            /usr/bin/qmake-qt3   45        auto mode
  1            /usr/bin/qmake-qt3   45        manual mode
* 2            /usr/bin/qmake-qt4   40        manual mode

Press enter to keep the current choice[*], or type selection number: 

and select qt4
