The initial version of kdesvn-build supporting Qt from git is ready.  Due to 
the impending 4.3 release I'm performing the work in a branch though, (aptly 
named kdesvn-build-1.10 in /branches/work).

I've merely observed it download Qt using git and start into the configure 
script, although from that point on there shouldn't be much different for the 
actual build.

You can download a different repository (i.e. the kde-qt one) by specifying the 
repository name using the repository option for qt-copy.  i.e.

module qt-copy
 repository +kde-developers/qt/kde-qt.git
end module

Even if you don't use kde-qt and  use vanilla Qt you should keep the module 
name as qt-copy for now.  apply-patches is a useless option now from what I 
can tell so it's gone.

And so far the configure script looks like it's stuck in an infinite loop for 
me. :-/

Hopefully it's not related to srcdir != builddir but I don't have time to look 
at it now, hopefully I will tomorrow.
