Good timing :)

Tor Arne and I were wondering about the same thing yesterday. I think that 
there are two issues:

   (1) We do not set DLLDESTDIR correctly. On Windows DLLs belong into a 
%PATH% accessible directory (usually bin) and the .lib files belong into a 
directory reachable for the linker (usually lib). We only create two sets of 
DLLs: The main WebKit DLL and plugins like the QML plugin. The former seems to 
end up in more or less the correct path, but the latter does not. That's where 
we may be able to catch them with a line along the lines of
"plugin: DLLDESTDIR = $$DESTDIR" in win32/default_post.prf (as suggested by 
Tor Arne).

   (2) Sometimes binaries end up in the wrong path. I think the 
ROOT_WEBKIT_DIR/etc. calculation in default_pre.prf doesn't work well with the 
Windows paths. There might just be a $$toSystemPath() missing somewhere :)
