Yes, but only if you build it that way.

% .osx-packager/src/qt-everywhere-opensource-src-4.6.0/configure --help
Qt/Mac only:

    -Fstring ........... Add an explicit framework path.
    -fw string ......... Add an explicit framework.

    -cocoa ............. Build the Cocoa version of Qt. Note that -no-framework
                         and -static is not supported with -cocoa. Specifying
                         this option creates Qt binaries that requires Mac OS X
                         10.5 or higher.

Future versions of Qt may be Cocoa only, but for now,
osx-packager doesn't ask for it, and the resultant Qt
should be Carbon+Cocoa.

>   Hopefully in the end I can simply copy the Qt Mac Framework directories over to the AppleTV and have that work.  I think myth is currently compiling against 4.6 headers which managed to get on the build path from an earlier failed build attempt but hopefully that doesn't matter.

Neither am I, but I will attempt to run 10.6.4 built binaries
on 10.4, and if necessary try some 10.4 target builds for you.

Meanwhile, there should be plenty of Web or Wiki pages that
describe how people compiled for the ATV in the past?
