You can build it yourself without MacPorts.  The configure script allows 
you to specify whether you want to build frameworks or not.  I myself 
configure it as static libraries without frameworks.  That way you can 
use dead code stripping and get smaller applications.

Qt doesn't have any third-party external dependencies, so MacPorts isn't
