Sorry, I was not clear. You do not need to change anything for Qt port 
at r47266 (just add those defines).
See Qt build guide at http://trac.webkit.org/wiki/BuildingQtOnLinux .
For Gtk port the configure and makefiles files are not yet prepared to 
support ARM JIT. In this case
you have to add new configure rules, and add new files to Makefiles.
