Ok, thanks for the feedback. I have had some issues with the cross- compilation of WebKit (dftables being built for the cross-platform, not the native platform). Any chance I can get someone doing the WebKit Qt port to address this? I don't know qmake well enough to make the changes. The defect was there two weeks ago, and I don't think I've seen any changes in that area since...

Trolltech is likely to continue to use the qmake based build system for now. That is because we are working on integrating WebKit into the build of Qt itself (which is built using qmake) and we need to be able to build WebKit
without cygwin or bash installed on Windows.
