WebCore contains code for storing favicons in an SQLite database. Whether 
this code is enabled depends on the port. For example it is not enabled in 
the Apple port, but it is in the Qt port. The following code would enable 
persistent storage of the favicons:

#include "IconDatabase.h"

const char* pathToDatabaseFile = ...;


Which port are you working with? You would then use the respective API of 
that port, and not the WebCore API directly.
