Or, as you're using Debian, you can use pinning to prevent apt from  
updating Qt. See e.g. [1] or ask google.

I would hate a bundled Qt because it is a large beast and if everybody  
starts doing it we end up in Windows-Land where every program comes  
with the full set of libraries it depends on, cluttering the system  
until it's so broken only a clean install can solve the problems...
