Which Qt are you trying to install? Qt-3.2.3 installed just fine on my 
systems. If Qt isn't installing, it sounds like you may have an old version 
of X-Windows. Paste the error messages and a pkg_info listing of your ports. 
I think someone will then have a better chance of understanding what the 
problem is.

Yes, on 4.x. I think they are running 3.3 on 5.x. I can't be specific because 
I am doing some work on a web page on the machine that dual boots XP/FreeBSD

I don't really think you need to at this point. The messages may mean 
something else.

No problem. I was/(still am) hard pressed to figure out a simple solution. I 
think most computer problems can be solved using the surgical scalpel 
approach and slashing away with a broad sword is totally alien to my nature. 
Unfortunately, there are times when you just have to stop, clean things out, 
and start over to get a clean, simple solution.
