*Stop right there.* You shouldn't just update individual ports every time you
run into a problem, and you shouldn't mix ports trees fetched via Subversion and
Portsnap (it's unclear if that's what you're doing, but I mention it just in
case). If you're having trouble with one port after another you should just
delete your existing ports tree and start with a fresh ports tree using one
method or the other, either
`svnlite co https://svn0.<Subversion ports mirror>.freebsd.org /usr/ ports`
`portsnap fetch && portsnap extract`
Then try installing the ports you need. devel/qt4 would be the 5th or 6th port
you've been unable to build today, suggesting the problem goes beyond individual
