Hi Simon,

After sending my status report I was informed by Alexis and Jesus that
you were working on the same stuff as me. I was waiting to talk to you
tomorrow at IRC (in the meanwhile I was reading about CI system). I'll
comment each of your question/comments below.

On my first attempt to compile QtWebkit I was using a vanilla tree.
Qt5 was compiled without knowing about QtWebkit so everything worked
fine. As I did another attempt to get a single "make" compiling
everything I realized that I should modify some file elsewhere to
avoid "qt5/qtbase/mkspecs/modules/qt_webkit.pri" being
copied/generated. This file was causing some confusion as the qtwebkit
build was failing. I don't know much about QMake/QtWebkit buildsystem,
so I was investigating before asking.

Very good! I did the same with phonon module. I don't know about
qtwebkit-examples-and-demos module and the "fix-webkit" script. Are
they necessary/up to date?

Are you using a plain configure && make or Ossy's build script to
test? I'm trying a new build using your version to see if I get that
problem with .pri file again.

I think someone with more know-how can comment on this one, but it
seems right to me.
