A few suggestions.

Download the RedHat SRPM file for RHEL 3.0 Qt.  Look at how they
configure it.
ftp://mirrors.kernel.org/redhat .... should have it.

If you installed nVidia binary drivers, they change your OpenGL
libraries and header files.  Reinstall the Mesa GL libraries and
development packages and try building.  You'll have to reinstall the
nVidia libraries after you're done.

Upgrade to RHEL 5.0 Beta?  I don't know what kind of deals RedHat makes.
Does it include upgrades?  Is it a one-time purchase or a yearly support

If you're a programmer, you could try modifying QLC to run with older Qt
versions.  I don't know what sort of features it uses from 3.3 but you
might be able to work around them to build with an older version of Qt.
