This seems to be a problem with gcc 2.96 and 3.0. If you upgrade to 
3.0 you have to upgrade _every_ library and programm which uses C++. 
Some Distributions uses both library versions parallel, so your 
compiled qt programs will run but you can not compile programs with 
gcc 3.0 and a qt library which is compiled with a other gcc version.

What to do? my tip: update to gcc 3.2 (which is binary incompatible to 
3.1 and 3.0 and 2.*) recompile qt with gcc 3.2 (or install a 
precompile qt) and recompile all kde and qt programs. 

Of course you can upgrade your whole system to RH8.0 or change to 
mdk9.0 which both uses the gcc3.2 version.
