[Qtwebengine] Compiling with mp3 support

we don't enable mp3 support in the open source version by default because
Chromium itself doesn't.

See http://www.chromium.org/audio-video for more info.

It is possible to enable the documented GYP flags there by running qmake
in qtwebengine with:

qmake WEBENGINE_CONFIG+=proprietary_codecs

but be aware that if you do so, I would guess that you are responsible for
getting a license for those codecs yourself.
