I have no idea why 'configure' is run. No configure is run for me at all.

Well i have been using freebsd for about a yr an i update my ports via 
svn, but i also maintain a standard copy of the ports tree via csup.

Sadly the same error existed when i tried make -C 
/usr/ports/databases/qt4-sql clean build ... id gladly use pkg_add if 
had the pre-build pkg for QT4-sql vers 4.4.2 or even all the QT4 @ vers 4.5
