I have built it a couple of times now ;-)

Have you set up your environment correctly by sourcing setup-env?
cd shr/shr-unstable
. setup-env
bitbake qt4-x11-free

and the come back hours or days later...

If you are interested in some recipes I made for my programs, you can have a look here: [1]
litephone, qnavitctl, qsuunto-lite, simple-browser and stopwatch are all Qt apps

You also might want to add FULL_OPTIMIZATION_pn-qt4-x11-free = "-fexpensive-optimizations -fomit-frame-pointer -frename-registers -O2" - for me this solved some dbus problems concerning Qt on Freerunner.
