It is sure you'll have to call an "nmake clean" to make it work.
Beside that I think it should work if you just remove the 
"CONFIG(QTDIR_build)" condition.

You could also try to start a debug/release build and edit the 
Makefile.Debug/Makefile.Release file to change the compilation flags to 
the ones you want if you want to test something (though your change will 
be overwritten if you touch WebCore.pr?).
