Building QT5 Stable Branch from Git Repo on OSX 10.8.3

  • I haven't been able to successfully build either the stable or dev branch from source on OSX. I was able to build the 5.1 alpha release successfully but I'd really like to learn how build from source preferably using qt5_tool.

    Error Message:
    @1 warning generated.
    tst_qquicktextedit.cpp:2311:10: warning: variable 'xoff' is used uninitialized whenever switch case is taken [-Wsometimes-uninitialized]
    case QQuickTextEdit::AlignJustify:
    tst_qquicktextedit.cpp:2316:28: note: uninitialized use occurs here
    int widthBegin = floor(xoff + line.cursorToX(pos - 1));

    qreal xoff;

    However QtWebkit doesn't get installed. When I try to manually build it I get the following errors:
    work AppKit -framework OpenGL -framework AGL
    ld: framework not found QtWebKit
    clang: error: linker command failed with exit code 1 (use -v to see invocation)
