As I previously said, the fix is ok for me.

Ok, I think he already noticed the problem and agreed to rebuild it.

Againt miscompilation of this package , it must be treaten as if there 
was code broken since the package makes major packages unusable 
(everything that depends on libqt3, quite a lot of packages to my opinion).

Something like libqt3-3.3.3-,
with changelog:
fix bad generation of the package.

Don't know why it should be treaten differently as a bug (it is a bug).
