Should I understand that when using the qtwebkit 5.6.0 tarball from 
community_releases :

- it is not necessary to run syncqt (knowing there's no include directory in the 
- the presence of a .git directory makes a difference even when empty?

Answer: apparently syncqt been rolled into qmake, to be triggered by the 
presence of a .git directory. That's nice. We'll see if the build goes through 

Out of curiosity: what happens with 3rd party projects with a .git directory, 
how does qmake know when not to run syncqt?
