On the Mac, qmake will by default create an Xcode project file, not a  

So after "qmake", try

   open TeXworks.xcodeproj

to open the project, then Build.

Warning: I suspect you may still have another issue to tackle. If your  
setup is anything like mine, the poppler build probably didn't find Qt  
by default, and therefore won't have built the poppler-qt4 interfaces.  
When I build this, I set some flags for the configure script:  
POPPLER_QT4_CFLAGS and ...LIBS or something like that. Sorry, I don't  
recall the exact details offhand.
