Hmm. Didn't think of qmake simply not being in PATH, I'll look into this when I get back on the computer tonight and report back.

Wow, this was complicated, but I made progress!
I found the exec for qmake, and you're right, it wasn't in PATH. A bit silly if you ask me.
So I started installing utouch for touchegg, which then required me to hunt down and compile the source for utouch-geis, utouch-grail and utouch-frame. This made me learn how to fiddle with pkg-config variables because the dependencies didn't like to find each other. Eventually I got all of that installed and compiled touchegg.
I couldn't find a GUI executable like the site advertised (I downloaded from SVN), which was strange. I shrugged, and ran the CLI executable. It complained that it couldn't find a geis related shared lib. I found the lib in /usr/local/lib and made a link to /usr/lib. Launched touchegg again. Alright, working!
I get this output.
[anthony@anthony-k53e src]$ touchegg
Gtk-Message: Failed to load module "pk-gtk-module"
Reading config from "/home/anthony/.config/touchegg/touchegg.conf"
Try to make a multitouch gesture. If everything goes well the information about the gesture must appear
I started making any kind of gesture on the touchpad. No cigar, touchegg wasn't detecting it.
I then killed touchegg, copied the example .conf file from /usr/share/touchegg/ and ran it again. Same problem.
Peeking at the .conf file just shows configuring the gestures to do what you want, rather than getting touchegg to recognize your touchpad, which I believe is my problem right now. The touchegg site says as of v0.2 touchegg auto configures for your touchpad. Since I compiled from SVN I imagine it should be doing that, but it isn't.

Found the touchegg GUI. It was a separate tarball in the downloads section. Compiled that, installed and ran it. It appears to just be a frontend for creating your own .conf file.
