Required dependencies for TQT (per my package manager) are as follows:

libmng, version 1.0.9 or greater
freetype, version 2 or greater
several X libs (libXft, libXi, xextproto, etc.)

Optional dependencies include cups, opengl, nas (Network Audio System),
xinerama, and several database engines.

The make system for QT variants is kind of complicated and you're not giving
a lot of information here.  Exactly what commands did you issue, and what was
the fatal error that ended the compile (copy and paste, and make sure you're 
only using one thread to build)?  What options did you pass when configuring
the source?

The truth is that only the development team and packagers build the whole DE
manually from source most of the time--that's why people are referring you to
the dev list.
