           Summary: Allow to overrule default build options for Qt build
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 528+ (Nightly build)
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: All
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: WebKit Qt
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: laszlo.1.gombos at nokia.com

WebKit in general, and the Qt port specifically does a good job of picking
sensible default configuration options and at the same time allowing the build
system to overrule the default options without changing the source code.

I run into a few configuration options where the Qt build system does not allow
to overrule the defaults. For example WebCore.pro makes a choice that if
"embedded" is defined than NETSCAPE_PLUGIN_API is not supported; and this
choice can not be overruled without changing WebCore.pro.

A patch will follow to address this issue and make the Qt build system more
flexible and consistent to follow a general guideline that if a default config
coice is made than there should be a way to overrule the default config choice
without changing the source files.
