Build qt source for MAC OS problem with finding standart C++ include files (SOLVED)
I am new to qt. Tried hard to build a static version of qt 4.8.5 on MAC OS X, but without success, please help.
Clone from here: git://gitorious.org/qt/qt.git to get version 4.8.5.
ran configure below, which has the correct -I path to the standard C++ include folder that has file "new", but ./configure could not find file "new" when it tried to build qmake. It seems "configure" ignored -I.
Got these messages:
Creating qmake. Please wait...

Hi and welcome to devnet,
You shouldn't need to add any path to the sdk's include path. configure should set everything for you. Re-run configure without all these additional paths (but first, cleanup everything)
Also, why are you doing a developer build with a prefix ? That defeats the purpose of the developer build. Either use a prefix (and make install at the end) or do a developer build.
Thank you for reply. I did as you instructed, but the problem not finding string.h is now appears. I wanted prefix because I need to static builds to work with MAC SDKs (10.4 thru 10.7). I forgot to mention I did install pre-built 4.8.5 version, if this cause problem I will uninstall and try again. Do you think I should uninstall the pre-build first?
I need your expertise as a qt consultant, so please send me an email and I will reply with a detailed description of my projects.
Which version of Xcode are you using ?
You can already send me the detail through the email form on my profile.
I would advise you to remove your email address from your post. It's not protected.
I failed to send email thru your profile. Please send me an email through regular channel.
I think I've found your problem
So your line should be something like:
And since you might be doing different builds, you should do an out of source build, so you only have the sources once.
I tried your way:
Same problem remains. But if I don't specify -sdk at all the build went further (configure completed no error), but after ran make for about 10 minuets, it halted with error,

I found the problem! All I had to do was uninstall xcodelegacy.sh (extract older Mac sdks and install to Xcode 4), then build qt. Life is good now. Thank you.
You're welcome !
Since you have it working now, please update your thread title prepending [solved] so other forum users may know a solution has been found :)
