My plan was to upgrade everything else by uninstalling qt4-mac, i.e., typing "sudo port uninstall qt4-mac". However, even after I do this followed by a "sudo port clean --all qt4-mac", "sudo port upgrade outdated" will still try to upgrade qt4-mac. Is there anything that I am overlooking? If I type "sudo port -v uninstall qt4-mac" it claims that it is already uninstalled.

Sounds like you have successfully uninstalled qt4-mac, and that other ports that you want to upgrade require qt4-mac, therefore MacPorts is trying to build it. The build failure of qt4-mac on Mountain Lion is already recorded in our issue tracker.
