i don't know what steps exactly you went through, but for the part 
"using qt" i would go for compiling from qt creator.

you should not have (big) problems using mingw there.

what i don't know, is how hard to get qt creator to use / compile the 
other libraries...

all in all, i welcome you tries to compile scribus with mingw. i tried 
that and failed... but i'm no windows user, so it was more of an 
exercise without much prior skills for me.
