At the Qt Contributor summit, we discussed about the future of WebKit2

The patch is now updated and the plan is to get it in a state that can 
be landed, and then improve on top of it to get the best rendering 

Once this land, Qt 5 and QtDeclarative will be needed to build WebKit2. 
If you want to work on WebKit2, you probably want to get Qt 5 :)
The instructions to get Qt 5 are here: 

In practice for WebKit2, you only need the following submodules: qtbase, 
qtscript, qtsvg  qtxmlpatterns-staging, qtdeclarative (+its submodule: v8).
