I can't compile qt4-mac package, because I have only 6 GB free space and that's not enough. How I can set compilation (working files) to external drive?

I was trying to use these environment variables, but without success.

export portbuildpath=/Volumes/EXTERNAL/tmp
export workpath=/Volumes/EXTERNAL/tmp1
export worksrcpath=/Volumes/EXTERNAL/tmp2

Thank you,
