[webkit-help] Help with building in Windows for VS2012

I'm trying to build WebKit for using with VS2012 runtime libraries, for both Win32 and x64 platforms. Here's what I've done (and failed):

Using qt-everywhere-opensource-src-5.0.2.
In VS2012 ×86 Native Tools Command Prompt, I type the following configure command:

configure -I C:\icu\include -I C:\OpenSSL-Win32\include -I C:\OpenSSL-Win32 -I C:\OpenSSL-Win32\include\openssl -opensource -openssl-linked -debug-and-release -platform win32-msvc2012 -icu -nomake examples -nomake tests -L C:\OpenSSL-Win32\lib -L C:\icu\lib

And I get a series of errors when it gets to WebKit, the first one being:

qt-everywhere-opensource-src-5.0.2\qtwebkit<http://qt-project.org/doc/QtWebKit.html>\source\webcore\generated\JSCrypto.h(35) : error C2065: 'Crypto' : undeclared identifier

...This is although JSCrypto.h successfully includes Crypto.h.
Any idea?

Giving up this approach, I've also tried to follow the rules in http://trac.webkit.org/wiki/BuildingQtOnWindows
Here there were two problems: running the perl command line, got a message that win_flex was missing (although the page doesn't mention win_flex, it mentions Flex). So, google'd & downloaded win_flex. Now the message is that qmake can't be found, and indeed in the open source package there is no qmake binary.

So my questions for this approach is:

-          Where can I find qmake for building the 5.0.2 open source binaries?

-          If I finally succeed to build, what compatibility will it have to VS2012?
