[webkit-qt] Heads up: Qt 5 + declarative are now dependencies to build WebKit 2

As the outcome of earlier discussions, from  
http://trac.webkit.org/changeset/91766 on Qt5 became a hard dependency for  
building Qt WebKit2. From now on neither the core Qt Linux Release bot nor  
the Qt EWS are building with WebKit2 enabled. The only bot building and  
testing WebKit2 is  
which currently seems to have the same differences in results compared to  
Qt 4.7 as the http://trac.webkit.org/changeset/91000 rebaseline for Qt 4.8  

It is safe now to land the patch from  
https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=62969 and follow-ups, but since  
this WK2 bot is not a core builder, it needs the distinguished attention  
of QtWebKit developers during the Qt5 related stabilization process. The  
plan is to update the Qt5 environment of the bot regularly (most probably  
once a week).
