I can't reproduce this:

[lofi at kiste]:1:/usr/ports/textproc/qt4-xml > sudo make depends
===>   qt4-xml-4.2.2 depends on shared library: QtCore - found
===>   qt4-xml-4.2.2 depends on executable in : moc4 - found
===>   qt4-xml-4.2.2 depends on executable in : qmake-qt4 - found

However: The Qt ports were initially committed with CATEGORIES set wrong in a 
number of cases. Try updating your ports collection and running pkgdb -F to 
fix the registered origins and see if that helps. If it doesn't, please 
provide an example where and how this happens exactly.
