Just to set the record straight, it turned out my bad experience 
building Qt was with a debug build of a pre-release version from some 
months ago. I hear building the whole thing is not so difficult, and 
there is even a standalone qmake tarball available now.

My bad on that point. I think the rest of the discourse is still valid.
