 i pick up a user comment to QT3 here:

 ''... Qt-3.3.8-UTF-8-fix.diff patch won't apply because it's dos formatted
 with (control)M (linefeed?) ...''

 I checked this idea because the patch does not apply here, too.  I added a
 sed to wipe out the 0x0D and the patch applies fine:

 sed -e "s/\r//g" ../Qt-3.3.8-UTF-8-fix.diff | patch -Np0

 So I would recommend to replace the patch command by the above one.
