As long as WebEngine is not (yet?) a “full" replacement of Qt WebKit functionality, most notably
we should still include Qt WebKit in our binary packages.
Assistant and Qt Creator will otherwise only have a QTextBrowser backend for displaying help,
leading to broken looking documentation, since that does not even roughly support the CSS that
we use in Qt documentation.
