I had actually read that page and made sure to follow the suggestions. This
part stands out now:

"Consider skipping qtwebkit by passing this option. This module is quite
big, takes a long time to compile and is often a source of compile errors,
so it is recommend to only download it if you intend to use it."

I ended up installing openssl, setting the SQLITE3SRCDIR environment
variable, and installing grep. The page claims grep is a build requirement,
but grep is not included in qt5's gnuwin32/bin.

I'm now able to complete the build. Thank you!
