i don't see it, but i haven't built qt from macports since 4.5.2
You probably have the +cocoa variable enable somewhere which will 
automatically disable qt3support.
So, if you're compiling qt4 add -cocoa as a variant, and if macports' qt 
(and not you somewhere in your variants.conf file or elsewhere) has 
defaulted to +cocoa, file a bug asking for this to be changed.
