nope, as far as I know, that functionality does not currently exist.

... of course, you don't really want to test to see which variant qt4- 
mac was installed with, you really want to test to see if it was  
built as a framework or not.

You could probably (in the portfile) test to see if the qt4 framework  
is installed in /Library/Frameworks or not and adjust your build
