Haven't solved it yet i QGIS compiles and runs, you just can't open any help. I'm setting up a spare 10.6 Mac to compile Qt from source so it shouldn't reference anything from 10.7. Odd that you'd get a 10.7 reference compiling on 10.5, time warp?

>> WARNING #2: delete existing plugins before running QGIS 1.7.4. If you can do it before installing QGIS, disable them in the old QGIS, then update and re-enable them one at a time after upgrading QGIS. If you have already installed 1.7.4, you need to manually delete them from ~/.qgis/python/plugins.
>> I've had a report of plugins directly using a specific GDAL version like 1.8 (I don't know how this is possible), which will crash QGIS 1.7.4 which uses GDAL 1.9. There also appears to be a problem with PyQwt so the profile plugin will crash QGIS.
>> Sorry for the breakage. I'll try to fix things as quickly as I can.
