Try:
--with-qt4-dir=/usr --with-qt4-bin=/usr/lib/qt4/bin
or:
--with-qt4-dir=/usr/lib/qt4 --with-qt4-include=/usr/include --with-qt4-lib=/usr/lib
(I looked at their acinclude.m4 and those are the switches they expect.)

On lib64 platforms, you'd want:
--with-qt4-dir=/usr --with-qt4-bin=/usr/lib64/qt4/bin --with-qt4-lib=/usr/lib64
or:
--with-qt4-dir=/usr/lib64/qt4 --with-qt4-include=/usr/include --with-qt4-lib=/usr/lib64

If you package it as an RPM, in the specfile, please use:
--with-qt4-dir=%{_prefix} --with-qt4-bin=%{_qt4_bindir} --with-qt4-include=%{_qt4_headerdir} --with-qt4-lib=%{_qt4_libdir}
or:
--with-qt4-dir=%{_qt4_prefix} --with-qt4-bin=%{_qt4_bindir} --with-qt4-include=%{_qt4_headerdir} --with-qt4-lib=%{_qt4_libdir}

(I'm not sure where exactly the qt4-dir is used other than as a default for
the other 3 settings, so try both /usr and /usr/lib/qt4 for that one.)

But the configure script sucks for not figuring it out automatically. If
they used CMake, it'd just work. (They wouldn't have to write their own
broken Qt 4 detection because CMake already includes a working one.) Death
to the autotools!
