Alternatively, it should work to set POPPLER_QT4_CFLAGS and  
POPPLER_QT4_LIBS when running ./configure. I'd guess you need  
something like this:

   POPPLER_QT4_CFLAGS=-I/opt/qt4.3.3/include POPPLER_QT4_LIBS="-L/opt/ 
qt4.3.3/lib -lQtCore -lQtGui -lQtXml" ./configure

Add other configure options to suit your needs, of course, and check  
if those paths are right; I don't know exactly how your Qt4 is  
installed under /opt.
