MythTV uses Qt 3.x not Qt 4.x.

So you need Qt 3.x installed; it probably already is.

And you need to make sure MythTV uses Qt 3.x and not
Qt 4.x. This is done by putting something like "/usr/qt/3/bin"
in your path, and by setting the QTDIR environment variable
to something like "/usr/qt/3". Where "/usr/qt/3" is your
Qt 3.x directory. It may be in "/opt/qt" or "/usr/qt3" depending
on your distribution.
