1. It should not be possible to "scramble" an installation by installing
packages with apt.  I usually compile the latest version having
simultaneously installed Debian's 3.4.

2. I think you have followed incorrectly the instructions: it says run

apt-get build-dep openscenegraph

and not 

apt-get install openscenegraph

the point is to have all the dependencies that OSG relies on installed
on your system instead of having to compile or install them manually
yourself, with I see it is giving you additional problems.
