So what are the options to make life easier ?

Use a distribution/platform which is friendlier to and has better packaging 
for the Qt libraries on which Scribus relies heavily:

- Original Debian where we have a superb maintainer. If you run Debian 
testing, you should almost always be able to have the latest and greatest with 
a fairly usable system.

- Windows ! - Scribus flies on Win2k/XP - If you disable Themes as a service. 

- openSuse or Fedora where I provide regularly update snapshots of both stable 
1.3.3.x or 1.3.5svn 

I would note for the readers that openSUSE is the distribution used by the 
majority of Scribus developers followed by Debian. Why this is is something to 
ponder.  (Hint - Suse developers have a clue about how to package Qt.)

*No* Scribus developer uses *buntu.   By choice.  Based on experience. Just 
for your information. :)
