I've had problems with that package too and I've gotten used to going
through pkgsrc to solve it.  If it's any consolation, this takes very
little time to build (certainly nothing like qt4-libs or firefox!)
Besides, I think that not every package is available as a binary and
then it's also necessary to build from source.
