You need to install something like netscape which will provide
virtual/x11-web-browser.  We're a bit behind in this area (we only have
Netscape 4.75, not 6... and Mozilla M18 I think).  If you want, just
edit the ebuild to remove teh virtual/x11-web-browser dependency
and try again.

I just fixed that so that it's dependent on >=qt-2.2.2, which will allow
you to use a newer version.
