Have you read
Especially the following part:
"The deprecated ebuilds for qt:3, and packages using it, will
remain available in the community-maintained kde-sunset overlay."
There indeed appear to be ebuilds for qt-3.3.8 in kde-sunset.
As QT ebuilds are slotted, I don't expect any trouble arising
from installing qt-3 in parallel to qt-4 (even with qt3support
enabled, as that's just to help developers to move to qt-4
without having to touch all of their code; it's still qt-4,
and not something that looks like qt-3 from the outside).
>From my past experience with Gentoo, there's little that you
can't easily fix on your own with a little research and/or by
dropping a slightly tweaked or old ebuild into /usr/local/portage.
Or, as mentioned above, by adding an overlay.

You probably don't have to. You can still grab the dead ebuilds
for Scribus here
and drop the one you want into /usr/local/portage and add that
as your local overlay in /etc/make.conf:
You can do the same for other packages if you run into
dependency problems. The only trouble you might face is
that some old packages stop building with a new toolchain.
(But that's probably only to give you an idea of why the
Gentoo folks stopped supporting it ;) [*]
I really hope you find a solution to your problem.
If, as Christoph mentioned, 1.3.7svn is the solution to
your problem, even better. :)
[*] No, I'm not and have never been actively contributing to
the Gentoo core distribution; but it's by far my favourite
flavour of Linux, as it sucks so much less than anything
else I've tried. I _does_ give me headaches every once in
a while, but it's usually stuff that can be fixed.
