Don't allow portmaster to download Qt4 distfiles for you. All Qt4 ports
share the same distfile, portmaster spawns 'make fetch' in background
for each port it tries to upgrade, as a result you may get corrupted tarball.

You can try instead
cd /usr/ports/devel/qt4-corelib && make distclean && make checksum
