What other apps do you need besides qtcreator? We have that built in binary format
for PC-BSD right now, which doesn't require any other compiling to run:

If you are trying to get some end users to simply install BSD, and run QTCreator
or some other app, PC-BSD may be an option, since it is FreeBSD under the hood. Plus
if we don't have some app you need, you can always request it here:
