trouble with qt4-mac install

Hi Comer - It is quite possible that qt4-mac is still building.
Depending on your specific Mac and OS, it can take 1 hour to 1 day.  I
truly doubt that the install was stalled; more likely is that it just
takes a very long time to build.  If you have the patience and
resources, leave it going overnight.  If that doesn't work, then try:

sudo port clean qt4-mac
sudo port -d upgrade qt4-mac > ~/Desktop/qt4-mac-upgrade.txt 2>&1

and let that go overnight, then ^C it in the morning, compress the .txt
file, and create a new tickets with that compressed file attached to it
& we'll see what we can figure out from it.

Good luck! - MLD

I have run against an apparent problem in trying to do an upgrade
outdated for qt4-mac.  Here is what I see

homelap-3:~ comerduncan$ sudo port upgrade outdated
--->  Computing dependencies for qt4-mac
--->  Building qt4-mac

The thing is that this just hangs (after 3 hours I cntrl-C'ed it).  I
also get  an apparent hang with sudo port install qt4-mac.  I have
already done a port selfupdate with the result that the macports base
is already at the latest version. Also, I note that port installed
lists qt4-mac @4.7.4_1+quartz as installed.  So I am wondering why this
is occurring?

Thanks for suggestions!
