As it turns out, I already have it (and qtconfig) installed.  They were
included in the qt-x11-4.6.2-20.el6.x86_64 rpm.

I ran qtconfig-qt4 and changed the GUI Style under the Appearance tab to a few
different things (it was originally set to "Desktop Settings (Default)" but
that didn't solve the problem.  Any of the drop-down menus that provide various
choices don't have a border or a scroll bar, including both Scribus and the
qtconfig-qt4 program.

See this screenshot for an example of what I get when I select a menu:


If the list is long, the menu extends from the top to the bottom of my physical
screen, with a little arrow at the top and the bottom which, if I sit the mouse
pointer on the arrow, makes the list scroll up and down.

But as you can see, the decorations (scroll bar, etc) are missing.  I don't
think it's a configuration issue, but rather an issue of a missing library, or
missing functionality in a library.  The program appears to be trying to use a
qt function that doesn't exist on this computer.  If I could find out what
library provides that function, I suspect that installing it would cause those
menus to look right.
