Yes, I have been looking for something like this, but nothing so far 
jumped out at me. I guess for finding such things systematically one 
would have to run kdevelop, the IDE scribus seems to have been written 
in. Too heavy for me :-)

No. The funny thing is, there is no warning at all when all the object 
files are linked in (the bad case), but there are tons of "symbol foo 
from /sw/lib/libfreetype.dylib, not from earlier library etc" warnings 
when the main.o is linked alone (the good case). Nothing concerning 
libqt-mt, though.
