Gentoo no longer offers qt3.  It does offer the qt-qt3support 
package, but CMake gives me

CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:234 (MESSAGE):
   No Qt3

The only two packages that I have that require qt3 are scribus 
and openoffice (which requires the qt-qt3support package but 
not qt3).

If I install another instance of Qt3, that could give me problems 
with openoffice, which means that I may have to install a version 
of openoffice that is not supported by Gentoo.

So if I want to keep using the stable version of Scribus, I'll 
have to find source tarballs for the following:


And possibly a few others that I might need for qt3 which may (or 
may not) work well with multiple instances of the same libraries.

And then I have to remember to make sure that everything is 
installed in the nonstandard locations that Gentoo uses so that I 
don't wind up with duplicate libraries when I go back to using 
the packaged versions.

**To reiterate**: Has the file format changed between 1.3.5 and 
1.3.6?  If there has been no change, it should not impair 
collaboration, since I am doing the design, and the main reason 
for others to use Scribus is to check on the progress before I'm 
ready to start giving proofs.
