 Copying the resolution here for the record.

 There's no shame in what happened, but I still don't understand the error
 you got. I've seen port builds fail and then succeed when trying again,
 for unclear reasons, but never one of the Qt ports.

 Given the error you found I'd suggest you run a check on your harddisk.
 Something like:

 > sudo port install smartmontools
 ## start a long self-test on disk0, presuming that is the device on which
 your MacPorts install lives
 > sudo smartctl -t long /dev/disk0
 ## leave the computer running for the indicated duration then check for
 any reported errors
 > sudo smartctl -a /dev/disk0

 You can use the system normally during that self-test; disk IO may be a
 bit slower. Just take care that the disk cannot go "to sleep" (via the
 Energy Sys Prefs. panel).
