so once i again i ask for some help with why QT refuses to compile 
saying .....

I have used the little-endian an big-endian flag an it made no 
difference, so plz someone have the kindness to help.

a good idea to provide an overview of all packages installed on your system
(e.g. an `ls /var/db/pkg`).
