Vaclav is right. You shouldn't install anything in /usr/local/. You
don't need to *know* where the files are installed. Thay should be in
default system path, somewhere in /usr/ (but not local). you don't
need to know this path, because you should simply launch your suse
package manager and install boost-dev and qt3-dev packages. They will
be installed in correct path automatically.

If you start to install stuff by hand, like downloading tarballs from
websites, and trying to install them by hand you are likely to get
into trouble that you already have.

Better to use your system default package manager (it must be
somewhere in your desktop menu!), and it will download correct .rpms
for you and put them in correct places, so that scons will
automatically find them.
