kdesvn-build trunk can build either one as well.  You will need to delete your 
qt-copy source directory first.

module qt-copy
  configure-flags ...
  branch 4.6-stable-patched
  repository git://qt.gitorious.org/+kde-developers/qt/kde-qt.git
end module

To be clear, I think Tom meant "git://qt.gitorious.org/+kde-developers/qt/kde-
qt.git" for 4.6-stable-patched as I cannot find it on the official Qt repo.

Running kdesvn-build qt-copy should then clone the git repo and build it as 
normal.  I haven't had time to test it in awhile, please let me know if 
there's issues.
