I doubt anyone has tried to cross-compile WebKit Qt. The dftables binary is
used to generate additional source files to compile, so you'll want that file
to be compiled natively even if you're cross-compiling everything else. (Note
that the minidom, testapi and testkjs binaries you'll want to cross-compile
I'd suggest filing a bug on http://bugs.webkit.org/ about the issue. If you
have a fix, post a patch to the bug. Thanks!
