There's all sorts of ways, but right now you've got something installed that
is non-Ubuntu, and requiring a c102 library - that means it's using a whole
different libc6 version than breezy.  You can make it work - after all,
that's why libraries have odd suffixes like c102, so that they don't
actively conflict with newer or older versions.  However, I shouldn't think
you can get a newer version of libqt3c102-mt from any ubuntu repository -
hoary's would have lower version numbers and breezy will be fixed at the
version you have or lower (if it came from some other repo).  Once you got
that from some other repo, then you'd need to find a way around the libc6
library itself.  You'd be much better off building from source.

klik promises much, but I think it's too early to be expecting it to work
with Ubuntu.
