I am not sure about Chromium. When one tries to build Chromium a lot of
external code will be downloaded, I don't have the things in my tree right now
but IIRC these external modules are all having Gyp files so one would need to
convert these dependencies and it will be quite some work.

I am having one specific issue with CMake right now, do you think it would be
possible to have defaults for WEBKIT_FEATURE(ENABLE_AS_IMAGE "Enable SVG as
image" DEFAULT ON SVG)? E.g. I need to define ENABLE_GLIB as otherwise I end
up having a '#define ENABLE_GLIB' in the cmakeconfig.h breaking the build.
