Thanks again. I'll look into somethings we don't really use (and don't 
pretend to do so) and rip them off as my app keeps on running, lol.

>> I think my best hope is based on what you glimpsed while pondering about SVG support on Webkit: compiling Qt submodules one by one, using the switches I might need and other that don't - doing so in a extreme fast machine (SSD raid and so on) with basic automatic functionality tests, could give me a very good result in a couple of days (using config parsing switches scripts). It would be awesome to provide a barely minimal and downsized package for mobile clients (which I'm now focused), as an example.
> Most of shrinking can be done deterministically: if you don't need to open TIFF images, remove TIFF plugin; if you don't use QtSql, get rid of it; etc. Also make sure you are using size optimization of compiler. Even if you don't disable SVG in WebKit, you don't need QtSvg and corresponding imageformat plugin - WebKit's implementation of SVG is independent and much more complete.
