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.
