Well, I tried to rebuild this package on my machine (4 cores, 6GB RAM, 2 
GB swap) and it was OOM killed as well.

This package is *hungry*.

I would suggest to not run make in parallel. Because this is what is 
killing it.

qmake-qt4 VERSION=%{shortversion} PREFIX=%{_prefix}
make %{?_smp_mflags} -j2

# tests
cd tests
cmake .
make %{?_smp_mflags} -j1
cd -

With this modification it succeed on my workstation.
