yes! i did get the same problemo in knoqueror and had to fiddle with 
sellecting the fonts until the text became visible.
do you mean uninstall QT packages and then rebuild from source?
ie this means a heap of packages with QT in them, libqt3-headers, 
libqt3-i18n, libqt3-mt, etc
which packages would you suggest I start with?
also,  there is no /etc/X11/qtrc, but there is user-account/.qt/qtrc and 
a /etc/skel/.qt/qtrc
