Second that!

Can you please post the correct way to invoke syncqt? The incantations I tried 
didn't change my errors :

Source/WebKit/qt/WidgetApi/qgraphicswebview.h:23:10: fatal error: 
      'QtWebKit/qwebkitglobal.h' file not found
#include <QtWebKit/qwebkitglobal.h>
1 error generated.
make[2]: *** [.obj/WebKit/qt/WidgetApi/qwebinspector.o] Error 1

According to Thiago (20151203):

Is that still "official"? How does one build this package against Qt 5.6.0 
(preferably calling qmake and make rather than using the build script)?
