This happens more often than you'd realise. I've seen people as this very same 
question on IRC and then I ask them to "echo $?" after make. They suddenly 
realise the build ended with an error.

Anyway, here's what I usually do when building Qt:

	make -k || make -j1

That will build as far as it can before giving up, then if there was an error, 
it will stop on the first error. Fix the error, then rinse and repeat until
