imo, if you're trying to get the newest scribus to run in a virtual 
machine the most useless thing to do, is to compile / manally fetch 
parts (or all) of qt!

first, use a linux distribution / version that has everything you need 
for compiling scribus.
the latest ubuntu and debian testing are (as an example) more than fine.

second: i hope you know that compiling in a vm takes much longer than 
doing the same on your computer...

third, if you have different goals than compiling scribus (and making 
patches), there are easier ways to get the newest 1.5.3 (for ubuntu 
there should be a ppa... or we can provide links for downloading
