This is a good starting point, but we're currently working on improving
that procedure here in this thread. So you probably want to stay tuned.
If we come up with a good solution, we'll also add that to the wiki on GC.

My guess would be that qmake is not in your path. When running `qmake
-v`, you should see the version information. If that doesn't work, it's
a problem with your Qt install (or rather your system's inability to
find it). You should find some information about installing in the Qt
docs, or else have a look on the internet regarding the $PATH variable
(I assume it's the same on the Mac).
