For the record, this is how my CI system builds its copy of Qt 5.6:

git clone https://code.qt.io/qt/qt5.git
cd qt5
git checkout ${QT5_TAG:-${QT5_BRANCH}}
git submodule update --init
./configure ${DEBUG_RELEASE} -confirm-license -opensource -dbus -xcb 
-nomake examples -nomake tests -prefix ${PREFIX}
make -j12
make install

Consulting the list of resulting binaries, it built QtWebKit, but skipped 
QtWebEngine for some reason :).

Anyway, this is just another anecdote that it was actually pretty easy to 
get QtWebKit from the 5.6 branch (on Linux, though).
