See my message of 7 Dec 2004, it suggests building a separate Qt 

Here are the instructions from that message

I have just built qt-3.3.3 on Mdk 10 yet again.

1. Download qt-x11-free-3.3.3.tar.bz2 from

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

I attempted to install Mdk10.1 but it "locked" up, probably on the video
card so I had to rebuild Mdk10 plus all the upgrades. When trying to
install Scribus, same error message as you so had to rebuild Qt as above.
