Ok, thanks for the feedback.  I have had some issues with the cross- 
compilation of WebKit (dftables being built for the cross-platform,  
not the native platform).  Any chance I can get someone doing the  
WebKit Qt port to address this?  I don't know qmake well enough to  
make the changes.  The defect was there two weeks ago, and I don't  
think I've seen any changes in that area since...
