Error compiling octave under Centos 7

Hi, I need to install a newer version than the repository octave (which is 3.8.2). 

I'm currently trying to install version 4.2.1 as it seems to be the newest. 

Here are all the steps that I did:

1)   yum update
2)   yum-builddep -y octave
3)   yum -y install qt-devel mercurial gcc-c++ lapack-devel libtool
4)   yum -y install epstool transfig pstoedit qscintilla-devel 

(NOTE: First problem was right here as there is NO pstoedit in Centos 7, as far as I know)

5) sudo yum install bzip2-devel atlas-devel libsndfile-devel portaudio-devel GraphicsMagick-c++-devel
6)  ln -s /usr/lib64/atlas/ /usr/lib64/ (One of the tutorials recommended doing this to fix a place where a library was being searched for or something like that. It seemed harmless enough)
7) wget 
8) tar-xvf octave-4.2.1.tar.lz
9) cd octave-4.2.1
10) export JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/java-1.8.0-openjdk
11) ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/octave/versions/4.2.1
12)  make -j4

It failed with this error:

In file included from libgui/src/
libgui/src/ui-settings-dialog.h:13:29: fatal error: QtWidgets/QAction: No such file or directory
 #include <QtWidgets/QAction>

This seems to be a Qt version problem but I don't know how to fix it.

Can any one give me a hand, here?

Thanks in advance.
