Thanks for your patience, as I am very new to Qt & WebKit.

>From the VS2008 Command window,
> qmake --version
QMake version 2.01a
Using Qt version 4.7.0 in

I added c:\qt\2010_05\qt\qmake to my PATH (could not quite get the
"--qmake=" option to work for me) and the next error was
QMAKESPEC has not been set, so configuration cannot be deduced.

I then added QMAKESPEC with a value of "win32-msvc2008" to my
environment, but the next error was
Could not find mkspecs for your QMAKESPEC<win32-msvc2008> ...

At this point, I think something is wrong with my basic environment.
If you see anything in the above that points to a simple fix, please
let me know...
