I was under >the impression that after version 2.2.4 or thereabouts only Qt4 could be used. Fishing through the ebuild shows that QT4 is definitely optional (switch --disable-qt4). However, I'm not sure what kind of GUI, if any, you'd get without it—the other deps specified for a non-QT4, non-headless build don't include a widget set, just SDL, OpenGL, and some X libs. An SDL-based GUI is possible, I suppose, but it's a bit peculiar.
