You do not need to rebuidl any KDE applications, the ABI is unchanged and 
QtWebKit 2.3 is a drop in replacement for QtWebKit 2.2. The easiest way is 
just to build newest QtWebKit, and then replace the one from Qt, or set the 
environment variable LD_LIBRARY_PATH so that the new one is preferred.

I am using QtWebKit from trunk on top of default KDE from Debian and it works
