I'm missing the $eval feature in the current qmake version (3.78). It's probably
not to hard to upgrade qmake to 3.8 or later. If this is not possible is it
possible to patch make myself? Do you have a ready patch that I can use somewhere?

I'm sorry, but we do not yet have such a patch.

Upgrading qmake to 3.80 or later is certainly possible, but to my knowledge
nobody is working on this right now. If you consider to pursue that I would
suggest to start by obtaining the source diff between 3.78 and 3.80 from the
make source tree. Based on that it might be possible to apply the change as a
patch (using patch(1) command) into SGE source tree.

I built qmake with gmake 3.8 a year ago. See:

Hi I tried to do what you said, but I was unable to put any SGE features into
make. It compiles and links with remote-sge.c but the resulting executable does
not understand sge options.. I probably did something wrong along the way :)
Maybe instead I need the 3.78 -> 3.81 make patch. Or the 3.78 ->
3.78-distributed patch.

Thanks for trying my changes.

I diff'ed 3.78 qmake vs 3.78 gmake, and I found that I missed one additional
additional in main.c. Without it SGE options are no handled by the new qmake.

int main (int argc, char ** argv)
  PATH_VAR (current_directory);

+  /* read and strip options for remote execution */
+  remote_options(&argc, &argv);

#ifdef WINDOWS32

Typo (yup, just woke up a few minutes ago), should be:

"I diff'ed 3.78 qmake vs 3.78 gmake, and found that I missed a change in main.c.
Without it SGE options are not handled by the new qmake."

Also, you will need to add the function declaration:

extern void remote_options PARAMS ((int *p_argc, char **p_argv[]));

BTW, if unsure, you can always download 3.78.1 from GNU, and diff main.c against
the SGE version.

That did it I now have what seems like a working 3.81 qmake. I had to hack the
Makefile to make it include remote-sge.c/o, so I'm not sure I've done the
./configure correctly but at least it works now.
