The .sln file is unrelated to the Qt build and its use of qmake. The Qt build 
on Windows right now only supports Makefiles (using nmake or mingw-make). 
QMake itself can also generate Visual Studio project files but we haven't 
tested these yet with WebKit. We will try to get them working at some point 
though, it might just need a few small fixes when calling the perl scripts.
