I thought you retired? Anyway...

Please don't move the script. Why would you? It's tested to run where it

Go to ~/src
make sure that ~/src/subsurface has the latest version of subsurface
bash -x ./subsurface/scripts/

If you do that it should hopefully notice that you have Qt downloaded
already (assuming that's where you put things). The whole point of the
script was to create something to make sure this is all reproducable.

Of course, since you didn't use the script to install the Android SDK, I
would ask you to please REMOVE the Android SDK that you may have under
~/src/... so that the script downloads the right one and then installs the
platforms (that was how I realized that you hadn't used the script).

I'll try to go back to sleep (darn insomnia) - will check in on your
progress in about 4-5 hours (if I'm lucky).
