Please check the issue tracker. There are a zillion bugs filed against qt4-mac. Probably one of them matches what you see. Probably another port you have installed is conflicting, and needs to be deactivated prior to installing qt4-mac (and needs to be added to qt4-mac's conflicts line to enforce this). I can't install qt4-mac on most of my systems either for similar reasons. Unfortunately since qt4-mac takes hours to build, testing for and finding this problem port is extremely time-consuming. If you can assist in identifying what other port is causing this problem, or confirm that another port is not the problem because it happens when installing qt4-mac into an empty MacPorts prefix, please add a note to the appropriate ticket. What OS you're on, what computer you're on, what build_arch you've set, and whether you're building universal (and what universal_archs you've set) are all good additional pieces of information to provide.
