you need QTDIR undefined to compile the libs, as it uses macport version.
the wiki says:

"Install CLAM dependencies available in darwinports. This command will 
compile each
   packages from upstream (the original project site) and will 
automatically pull its
   $ sudo port install xercesc pkgconfig libsndfile libogg libmad 
libvorbis fftw-single fftw cppunit qt3-mac"

so qt3 lib is a darwin port, installed at /opt/local. and later:

  * Take into account that you'll need to export QTDIR to qt4 when 
compiling networkeditor and annotator.
    * before doing "scons configure" make sure that QTDIR do not point 
to qt4 
    * before compiling SMSTools reset QTDIR=
    * before compiling Annotator point QTDIR to qt4
      (in my case export QTDIR=/usr/local/Trolltech/Qt-4.2.2/)
    * before compiling NetworkEditor point QTDIR to qt4

now i see it could be explained better (i'll do), but i don't see any 
confusing point neither.
maybe _too many_ things in parallel? ;-)
