Patch may be a while forthcoming,  Qt seems to think your machines are running 
windows during the install, when they perfectly well figured out they weren't 
during the build.

In any case, it appears that the fix at this point is simply uninstall any 
existing Qt version, and install the new one.  Packages are available for 
4-STABLE and 5.1-RELEASE, instructions at the second address in my .sig
