This /would/ be a way to compile Qt on an external Phonon, but currently Qt 
ships it's phonon. (as Qt "relies" on Phonon and Phonon relies on Qt)

So you 
- compile Qt with -phonon
(i.e. don't touch the phonon settings and Qt will compile it) to have Qt 
Phonon support (for later on)
- Then you compile phonon from/with kdesupport (to get a recent version) and 
have it replace the Qt variant by either 
   ° redirecting the PREFIX or 
   ° copy/symlink it by hand (maybe also run "sudo ldconfig")

As long as kdesupport phonon is BC to Qt Phonon, everything works...
