No, what I do is. Build Qt as normal, build KDE as normal, then build QtWebKit 
for KDE which builds a new version of both QtWebKit and KdeWebKit, they are 
however binary-compatible (at least kdewebkit is), so they plug straight in 
with existing applications. I just add the path the new libraries to 
LD_LIBRARY_PATH thereby overloading the old ones.  

It works quite well, and is not that complicated.
