[webkit-qt] Change of dependencies

in r91752[1] the default media backend was changed from QtMultiMedia
to GStramer and it breaks on the shiny new MIPS buildbot. The question
is if one has a full Qt configuration, should QtWebKit compile?

Qt Configuration:
$ qt/configure -no-glib -embedded mips -little-endian \
               -fast -prefix /usr/local/Qt4.7 -fast  -qt-gfx-vnc

Also there are some other things to consider:
   - Qt discriminates pkg-config when cross-compiling,
     should QtWebKit follow?
   - Should QtWebKit move to QtMultiMedia when glib/gstramer
     is not available on the system?
   - Does the GStreamer backend work without glib integration?
   - If QtWebKit requires GStreamer, maybe the project files
     should use error to fail at the configuration stage?
