r29506 is 3 years old. Apart from the (security) risk of using such an
ancient revision, it looks like the build script is not doing what it

> ./WebKitTools/Scripts/build-webkit --gtk --release --host=sh4-linux

gtk does not use qmake (IIRC it used to in the beginning of the gtk
port but then switched to the auto-tools).

I would advise against using such an old revision but if you do, you
are on your own.

Hope it helps,
