I'm able to build Qt (current qt5.git, including QtWebKit and QtMultimedia) with a MacOSX10.6.sdk when I apply

https://codereview.qt-project.org/38537 (a fix that is necessary for compilation with the -sdk option in general, also for compiling with 10.7 sdk on 10.8)
and the attached patch to qtwebkit (which only has a few header fixes, and also a general fix for compilation with the -sdk option)

QtMultimedia compiles, I don't know what might not work, or if something is disabled in this case?

With that Qt5 build I can also build and run Qt Creator, but there are some serious bugs, which might be actually be only one bug with redrawing:
1) In the welcome screen I only see my first session, the other appear at mouse hover (QtQuick1)
2) When clicking on a mode button, the actual switch seems to happen only after a second click
3) When using ctrl+number shortcuts to switch between modes, there are serious painting artifacts
