I am trying to build QtWebKit from the webkit.org sources by following the
instructions at:


I wanted to build it against Qt 4.7.2 which I just downloaded from

Towards the end of the build, I am getting errors when it is trying to build
some tests:

I am using a 64 bit debian 5 machine.

I have never built Qt or WebKit before, so excuse me if I am doing something
obviously foolish :)

Another somewhat strange thing is that I see the following .so files in the
WebKitBuild/Release/lib directory:

libQtWebKit.so  libQtWebKit.so.4  libQtWebKit.so.4.9  libQtWebKit.so.4.9.0

I would have thought that since I am using Qt 4.7.2, the QtWebKit version
would also be 4.7.2 instead of 4.9.0...

Kind regards,
