Well, that was not really the answer I was looking for. I know how to
build things from source but that's not what I want, I want to use a
package manager to keep it simple. The idea of using a package manager
is that you just install a few packages and it pulls the necessary
dependencies automatically. I install "qtcreator" because it installs
all necessary packages to develop and build Qt-4 Apps, including
"qmake" and "uic".

I want to put it into the manual for my project for FreeBSD:


It's supposed to be a quick and dirty guide on howto build on FreeBSD.
