Compiling PhantomJS on Shared Host with FreeBSD 9.1

I'm trying to build PhantomJS on a shared host which uses FreeBSD 9.1, without an admin privilege. I followed this instruction and build failed when typing python with the following error.

Creating qmake...
Running configuration tests...
 Turn on verbose messaging (-v) to /home/{user name}/www/tests/phantomjs/src/qt/qtbase/configure to see the final report.
 If you believe this message is in error you may use the fontinue
 switch (-continue) to /home/{user name}/www/tests/phantomjs/src/qt/qtbase/configure to continue.
ERROR: Failed to build PhantomJS! Congiration of Qt Base failed.

With this information, I tried,
% git submodule foreach git clean -ddfx
% python --qt-config "-I /usr/local/include/ -L /usr/local/lib/"
... very long outputs ...

Does anybody know what this means and what to try?

As side notes,
% python --version
Python 2.7.6
% pkg
The package management tool is not yet installed on your system.
The mechanism for doing this is not secure on FreeBSD 9.1. To securely install
pkg(8), use ports from a portsnap checkout:
  # portsnap fetch extract
  # make -C /usr/ports/ports-mgmt/pkg install clean
Do you still want to fetch and install it now? [y/N]:
% uname -a 
FreeBSD {host name} 9.1-RELEASE-p24 FreeBSD 9.4-RELEASE-p24 #0: {date} {host name} /usr/obj/usr/src/sys/{some name} amd64

I could make it possible for this loged-in user to use the git command by doing the following and editing .cshrc file to add the path. So I suppose it is possible to make a binary even for a non-privileged user.
% wget
% tar xjvf v2.8.0-rc4.tar.gz
% cd git-2.8.0-rc4/
% gmake configure
% ./configure --prefix=$HOME/local
% gmake all install
