Thank you for your help!  Do you not have commit privileges?  What
will it take to get the changes checked in so nobody else has to go
through this?

Me neither, anymore.  I uninstalled it.

OK, I'm confused.  I was under the impression that we'd be using
Qt/Mac, not Qt/X11.  Is that just wrong?

I had previously installed a Qt which resided in /sw/..., and I think
that was getting picked up in preference to the one built by the
script.  I don't know what it'll take, but that should probably be
resolved.  I couldn't figure out how to get rid of whatever was still
pointing at /sw/..., so I did a distclean and am presently rebuilding.

I very much appreciate whatever help you can offer!
