First of all, you're not building yet, just trying to run cmake.

Look at "Getting All The Things You Need" in

Looks like you need gcc-c++ and qt-devel for sure, but if you see the 
lists, it's likely you need more of those. lcms-devel is unlikely to be 
loaded on your machine already, for example. Generally, when cmake 
complains that XXX is missing, it means XXX-devel is missing.

It used to be that you had to specify qt4 to get qt4, but now it's 
flipped, so that qt = qt4 and to get qt3 you have to specify qt3.

You can check with yum, but using the rpm command can be quicker:

rpm -q qt-devel
