Indeed compiling qt is making the compiler rotate quite a lot.

Maybe. Maybe there are some software related factors there, too (qt isn't 
generally more sensitive to typical scenarios of ports-based installations 
being inconsistent in a way that makes stuff break - like the mixed threads 
libraries example. The difference is, qt very often just fails in a rather 
undescriptive way, and as it seems, way more often in some places than others 

However, qt does not randomly fail on the package builders - and packages are 
an excellent way to avoid the compilation stress. :)

BTW: A new qt version has been released yesterday... I'm already busy porting
