KDE was already GPL >=2.
qt backports predates 2008/01/18, packages are GPL =2.

So backporting qt-x11-free (3.3.7 -> 3.3.8b) and adjusting the
build-deps should be enough, doesn't it?

I see that the gnash build-dep may be wrong btw, libqt3-mt-dev is
"3.3.8" instead of ">=3:3.3.8".

if dpkg --compare-versions '3:3.3.7' '>=' '3.3.8'; then echo "True"; else echo "False"; fi
=> True

This explains why this issue wasn't raised at compile-time.
