I'm surprised that you dont state *what target* is missing a rule to be maked.
It could enable to fix the makefile.

Very little users have tried to compile scribus on windows
but probably many have achieved to compile Qt Libraries on Windows.
If all you miss is Qt libraries, then you'll get help
searching for specific help on making Qt libraries.

I advise to use Qt5.4 since Qt5.2 is now old and buged.
