The final solution is either to add /usr/lib64/qt-3.3 to the default 
values of QTDIR (SConstruct:81). Your solution is unnecessarily 
complicated, scons.config just saves values you pass on the command 
line. You achieve the same if you run

  $ scons QTDIR=/usr/lib64/qt-3.3

the first time.

For qt4, it is not source-compatible with qt3. I think Janek was working 
on a qt4 frontend, but I don't care since qt3 works just fine for me 
(gtk2 would be better, though ;-) )
