I went ahead and did this. https://github.com/veelo/qttools is a fork of 
qttools for the sole purpose of compiling Qt Assistant against a stock 
binary distribution of Qt as an independent application. It compiles 
quickly and conveniently using Qt Creator. The 5.13_assistant_webengine 
branch contains the WebEngine support by Allan Sandfeld Jensen and 
several additional fixes of my own. At least I have a working solution 
without the need to wait until the next morning for compilation of Qt 
and WebEngine to complete, with reasonable odds of being able to keep in 
sync with upstream and future releases.
