[Scribus] missing cygqt-mt-3.dll file

I just :

cd /
tar jxvf scribus-1.2.1.tar.bz2
tar jxvf qt-x11-free-3.3.3-0.tar.bz2
cd /opt/scribus/1.2/bin
ln -s /opt/qt/3.3/bin/cygqt-mt-3.dll
Xwin -multiwindow -clipboard &
/opt/scribus/1.2/bin/scribus.exe &

So i don't "cd ~" before launching Xwin and scribus, and it works.
Seems to be a library path problem.
