After discussing a bit with Laszlo we came to the following suggestion:

  - Switch the Qt Linux Release minimal bot to use a normal Qt build (so 
that it's a minimal _WebKit_ bot)

  - Leave the QT_NO ifdefs in for now, and accept patches that fix issues

Then we'll hack away in trunk on the new Qt 5 stuff, where we'll learn 
more about what defines make sense and which don't, and deal with the 
issue of removing defines when we know more. The likely result would be 
that we leave a meaningful subset of the QT_NO_ ifdefs in, and possibly 
Nokia or someone else provide a non-core builder for them.
