The easiest way I can think of to do what you want would be to make a  
small change to WebKit.pri.  Changing:

CONFIG(release) {



will lead to both debug and release builds having assertions and  
logging disabled.  If you then build for debug, you should have  
symbols in your build.  It may be possible to have build-webkit do  
this via a command-line argument, but I'm not sure on the specifics of  

Hope this helps.
