I think the problem is that Qt-X11 is not binary compatible with Qt-embedded. 
They are source code compatible.

So you can have same sources but you need to compile twice against Qt-X11 and 
Qt-embedded. This is probably because X11/embedded classes have different 
members and e.g. sizeof(QWidget) is different on each platform - but maybe i am 
wrong - i have not checked it.

If they were binary compatible you could run all Qt apps in debian (like 
navit, FBReader) without recompiling.
