Another possiblility is the following (only the new dependencies are

Package: libqt2-dev
Conflicts: libpng3
Build-Conflicts: libpng3

[note that libpng3 is the library package _not_ the -dev package]

This way neither a program that links with libqt2 nor a library libqt2 is
linked with can be linked with libpng3.
