kaptain on Suse Linux 9

I am currently trying out several graphical front ends for the molecular software package EMBOSS and I have read good reviews of kaptain. However, because there are no rpm packages of kaptain for Suse Linux 9 available, I tried to compile it myself. First problem was that the configure script couldn't find the libraries and headers for qt3:

> checking for Qt... configure: error: Qt (>= Qt 2.2.2) (headers and libraries) not found. Please check your installation!

Thus I executed ./configure with the option:

EMBOSS and GCK for the assembly and documentation of construct sequences

I am trying to use EMBOSS for the assembly of vector sequences. Long time ago, I used the CGC seqed program for this purpose and at the moment I use the Gene Construction Kit. EMBOSS doesn't have a straight equivalent for seqed and one has to use a bunch of other tools to replace its functionality. Look at this comparison between CGC and EMBOSS.
