I suggest you check /etc/env.d/ for 50qt3dir. This is the file in my system 
that is used to set QTDIR. You shouldn't have to set this variable by hand 
before emerging with paludis poppler-bindings. And the problem isn't in the 
ebuild or in paludis but in whatever install is supposed to create the 
appropriate file in /etc/env.d to set this environment variable.
