I have just built qt-3.3.3 on Mdk 10, this should work for you

1. Download qt-x11-free-3.3.3.tar.bz2 from ftp://ftp.trolltech.com/qt/source/

2. unarchive it and cd into the qt-x11-free-3.3.3 directory

3. we are now going to build it in /opt so change to su and execute

export QTDIR=$PWD &&
export PATH=$PWD/bin:$PATH &&
./configure -prefix /opt/qt-3.3.3 -qt-gif -system-libpng \
   -system-libmng -system-zlib -system-libjpeg -no-exceptions \
   -thread -plugin-imgfmt-png &&
make &&
make install &&
ln -sfn qt-3.3.3 /opt/qt &&
ln -s libqt-mt.so /opt/qt/lib/libqt.so &&
cp -r doc/man /opt/qt/doc &&
cp -r examples /opt/qt/doc

(all that is from the BLFS book, but note you will need all those libraries in the configure line above)

Assuming all goes well you will end up with qt in /opt

4. Now try building scribusCVS with this

./configure --prefix=/install/directory/ --with-qt-dir=/opt/qt

That leaves your old QT intact for all the other programs that might use it. It doesn't stuff anything and lets you keep up with the latest CVS

All you have to lose is a lot of cpu time building qt
