  Qt4 and QtRuby are GPL, which means that if you distribute you project
to anyone, you'll need to do so under GPL -- so you'll have to make
OpenSource software. If that doesn't bother you, that's all the legal
problems you'll have. It also applies to any Qt rubygem.

  If I understood right, you're looking for a gem that would also
include Qt4 libraries, is it right ? There would be no legal problem in
distributing it, but I think it will be rather tricky to make. I hope
I'm wrong.
