Well, the devel/qmake port was torn out of the rest of Qt3 (by yours 
truly) primarily in order to save (re)build time in addition to reducing 
the foot-print of Qt-installation for those, who were just using 
packages. For years now Qt3 was building fine with any version of qmake 
-- the two pieces didn't have to match. It still works just fine today.
It would've been nicer, if FreeBSD weren't adding its own gratuitous 
requirements "just in case" on top of Qt's own checks...
You don't have to "support" such mismatches, but you should not be 
actively preventing them either.
