As it seems to me, qutIM isn't ported to FreeBSD yet.

You don't need to do this on FreeBSD. Applications and libraries
that are ported to FreeBSD are available via the Ports Collection:


So you first install Qt from ports or packages, then try do get
the source of qutIM working. This would work like this:

1. Download the qutIM sources.
2. Extract them.
3. Run
	% ./configure (e. g. with needed parameters)
	% make
	% sudo make install

But keep in mind that it's possible that the configure script
doesn't honor the FreeBSD platform, so you won't be able to
compile and install it.

FreeBSD uses a different make program. As it seems, you try to
compile a Linux program on FreeBSD...?

It's a dependency, as well as the Qt library, that you have to
install prior to any compile attempt. A command like

	# pkg_add -r qt4-designer

should do this, and even install all other needed dependencies,
such as Qt itself.

Check out FreeBSD's precompiled packages and the ports collection.
Make sure the qutIM sources are compatible with FreeBSD's building

Finally, ask the developers of qutIM for a FreeBSD version.
