after building and installing (as root) the opening gui window is in an
infinite loop: when the "finish" button is pressed a duplicate window replaces
This is because in resource-manager.cc:114 the Qfile::copy fails because the
file default-qt-settings was installed like so:

 /usr/bin/install -c -m 644 ../../libgui/default-qt-settings

note the double slash where $(version) goes but apparently was not set.  The
code looks for default-qt-settings in

It also seems like the Qfile::copy failure should have been caught
