I should give you a heads up: we (the yocto project) are going to remove 
qt4 builds from the autobuilder altogether, sometime during this cycle. 
The repo will stay, and patches will be accepted though.

So it's up to you to solve these issues, but I wouldn't want to take
patches that fix up older releases, while the master branch remains 
broken. We have a 'master first' policy :)
