which OSE version are you using? 2.1.4 or SVN head?

Please use the latest configure.vbs from the subversion repository.
We added the switch --with-qt4 recently.

The reason that configure.vbs is a bit outdated is that we don't use
this script when building VirtualBox as we are using packages required
for building which are not available for the public world. We've started
to fix problems we get aware of, so try the updated script and tell us
if you have further problems.
