It looks as if the kgtk-qt3 adds that.  From the app's README:

1. kgtk-wrapper determines whether the application is a Gtk2, Qt3,
   or Qt4 application. It then sets the LD_PRELOAD environment
   variable to point to the approriate KGtk library.

and the gtk2/kgtk2-wrapper.cmake does indeed add to
LD_PRELOAD as well as $PREFIX/lib/kgtk/  I don't know why,
does perhaps need libnspr4 ?
