i'm not a qt expert or anything but chances are, if you're just trying to 
install an RPM that has a qt app, you don't need gcc or glibc-devel.

if you're actually trying to write a qt app, or compile (aka "make") a qt 
app, then you probably do need gcc, glibc-devel, glibc-kernheaders, and 
qt-devel. you may also need libstdc++-devel, et. al...

(kernel-headers is provided by glibc-kernheaders, not kernel)
