I was having the same problem as the OP. After Dan's post I did a "make 
patch", then modified the configure script replacing two instances of == with 
= on these two lines:

25851:if test "x$have_qt" == "xyes"; then
26033:if test "x$have_qt" == "xyes"; then

After that I was able to make and install the port.

gnome@ folks, should I submit a PR or will you guys just take this upstream
