Yes, being "known module" for qmake is just a matter of .pri file installation into mkspecs/modules

You have to install QtWebKit into Qt prefix, or otherwise point QMAKEPATH environment variable to your installation when running qmake

IF WE LEAVE OUT _QWebEngine_ from the Qt 5.7.0 (or Qt 5.6.2) source code build, we could build that with Visual Studio 2010 SP1 on Windows 8.1 ... AND use that with the Qt 5.5.1 QtWebKit we've already built? (using that same VS version, of course).
>>> No, it won't compile. Don't waste your time with a 7-year-old compiler with Qt 5.7. If you think you need to use MSVC 2010, I urge you to revisit your assumptions. Then revisit them again, because you're using a 7-year-old compiler. If you're willing to upgrade Qt, why not your compiler? And if at the end of that you still need MSVC 2010, then you'll have to stick to Qt 5.6.

>>> No, you won't even get qmake from Qt 5.7 compiled with MSVC 2010. You'll get errors in the first .cpp being compiled.
