The tendency is to have the current distro version not named for the 
version, ie rather then qt3-xxx

Think you might have it already ;)
Need to know distro version ?
rpm -qa qt\*|sort
locate mkspecs

I have qt-3.3.8-7.fc7 installed on my f7-current pc.
Perhaps mkspecs would be available in the qt-devel ?

Try the the mandriva rpm; it at least starts - I'll leave it to you to 
see if it works as expected.
