Yo listen up here's a story about a little guy that lives in a blue world

Ok, so I have downloaded module 05-devel.xzm and put it where it should be.
Whoever looks after website, please consider adding address dl.porteus.org to downloads menu at main page.
Then I booted Porteus and... Rainbows! Ponies!! Native support for DirectX!!! And, of course, qmake and all other stuff, but who wants qmake after getting native DirectX support. So I discarded 3 of 4 and kept DirectX.
But before it happened, I tested work of autogen.sh script which was supposed to build fred.
First, I had to remove from there option -qt=qt4 to which qmake said "me no comprendo such french".
Second, I had to replace profile name "release" with "all" for make, because there was no such profile in makefile as "release"and "all" looked the most appropriate for compiling everything.
Third was message that it can't find hivex.h to include, and search for files confirmed that there's no such libraries in my porteus install. That's where my patience wore off.
Good thing about devel.xzm is that I can now delete it from modules directory and free few mb. Then next time I need qmake I can come back to forum and ask the same question. Because what the rake is for if not to step on it again and again?
