Hi Daniel,

you can simply use ./configure -platform unsupported/freebsd-clang

I've provided some patches for Qt on FreeBSD on the kde-freebsd mailinglist to 
move the libs to /usr/local/lib/qt5 which are still not in the freebsd ports 
yet. Those allow using portupgrade and building a custom Qt with a 
ports/packages installed Qt without build errors. You may want to have a look 
at those too.
