Default Kmail and Scribus 1.5.0 on Debian Testing.

I have been a Slackware guy for more than a decade, but recently I
have encountered an intractable problem. I really need two programs
for my daily work. Slack 13.0 will handle Kmail like a champ but
because of elderly version of Qt4 won't compile the developmental
package Scribus 1.5.0. Slack 13.1 will compie Scribus 1.5.0 ( I do
this overnight) but Kmail is thoroughly messed up.

So I tuned to Debian Testing. I used apt-get to add the compiler stuff,
KDE for Kmail, svn, cmake and so on. But something, almost certainly
KDE, has screwed up parts of Qt4. When I attempt to compile Scribus
1.5.0 I get these error messages:
--------------------------------------------------------------
Warning: QT_QMAKE_EXECUTABLE reported QT_INSTALL_LIBS as /usr/lib
Warning: But QtCore couldn't be found. Qt must NOT be installed
correctly, or it wasn't found for cross compiling.
CMake Error at /usr/share/cmake-2.8/Modules/FindQt4.cmake:642
(MESSAGE):
Could NOT find QtCore. Check
/usr/local/src/s150/CMakeFiles/CMakeError.log
for more details.
Call Stack (most recent call first):
CMakeLists.txt:465 (FIND_PACKAGE)
etc.
----------------------------------------------------------------
Here is my script for compiling and installing Scribus 1.5.0:
-----------------------------------------------------------------
cd /usr/local/src/
svn co svn://scribus.net/trunk/Scribus s150
cd s150
cmake . -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX:PATH=/usr/local/scribus_svn -
DWANT_SCRIPTER2=1
make
make install
cd scribus
rm /usr/local/bin/scrib5
ln scribus /usr/local/bin/scrib5
--------------------------------------------------------------
The above script works regularly. on slack 13.1 but not unfortunately
on my copy of Debian Testing. I'll try copying the copy of QtCore.so
found in the Python directories to /usr/lib but I am not sanguine
about the results.

My base question: assuming that important parts of Qt4 have been
overwritten by KDE4 how do I get beck to the original testing
versions?
