In the very initial state, I'd never installed this port at all. I first
did, multiple times (since I was puzzled by the SDK complaint):
sudo port install qt6-qtbase
sudo port uninstall qt6-qtbase
This built each time.
At some point I decided that I wanted the log, so I added -k to the
install. I *think* it was after that that the install stopped rebuilding
(though that was on another day and another boot), even after adding -s.

The uninstall *claims* to clean twice, once after the deactivate and once
after the uninstall. But it's insufficient to avoid skipping the build on
the next install. Cleaning explicitly after the uninstall seems to fix
it. However, it appears that the implicit clean after the install (when
not suppressed by -k) is sufficient.
