Well, it might appear as a very dumb question, but ... where do I find 
this version of QtWebkit that doesnt depends on lib ICU? I was digging 
around with version 2.3 (including ones already included in Qt 5.2 b1) 
and they still needs ICU.

Thanks again.

Kind regards,

>>> 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.
>>> One thing I was thinking: is there any ICU flag that I could disable during compiling that doesn't affect Webkit behaviours? I'm asking this because after (or even) webkit's own lib, ICU's the bigger one (~21Mb in Windows -- I'm still working to get it's release lib on mobile).
>> The largest thing in ICU is internationalization data. Depending on target audience of your application, you may want to remove data for some locales - look into ICU documentation how to prepare custom .dat file. There may also be kinds of data unused by WebKit - maybe currencies or timezones, though I don't know for sure.
>> BTW, QtWebKit 2.3 does not depend on ICU - you may want to use it, or forward-port code replacing ICU to your QtWebKit version.
