Ok. I have downloaded this too and checked out it's configure. It's the 

I really can't see how this could have happened. Does your $PWD contain 
spaces or other special characters? (though if this was the case, you 
should have ended up with other errors)

You can get a dump from the shell as its running configure. That might 
help identify what is going wrong. You'd do that with commands like this:

cd qtbase
sh -x ./configure -prefix $PWD -release -opensource >log.txt 2>&1

You could gzip the log file and send it to me if you'd like. It's 
possibly not something you'd want to put on a public list like this.
