[webkit-dev] QWebElement not found in Qt 4.5.2

If I run the command explicitly at the command prompt linking to the .a instead of .lib, it works:

g++ -enable-stdcall-fixup -Wl,-enable-auto-import
-Wl,-enable-runtime-pseudo-reloc -Wl,-s -mthreads -Wl
-Wl,-subsystem,windows -o ..\..\..\bin\QtLauncher.exe release/main.o 
-L"defaultbuild\Release\lib" -L"c:\Qt\4.5.2\lib" -lmingw32 -lqtmain
...\..\..\WebCore\defaultbuild\Release\lib\libQtWebKit4.a -lQtUiTools
-lQtXml4 -lQtGui4 -lQtCore4

But I have problem later when compiling release\tst_qwebframe.exe. I can ignore that for now.

However when I try to launch the QtLauncher.exe, it complains about the
entry point for the library QtWebKit.dll not being found.

I am working on Linux, and now I see you are working on
Windows with MinGw. I will try to build with your config,
and then answer you approximately in an hour.
