Those were my first days with Buildroot. Less than two weeks I guess.

Well, I think we should remove the dependence on 
BR2_PACKAGE_QT_ARCH_SUPPORTS_WEBKIT in both grantlee and qt_script 
packages. I made a confusion because qt_webkit was failing due to it's 
JavaScriptCore part. That's not related to the Qt's script modue, so 
qt_script (and the packages depending on qt_script) shouldn't depend on 

Does this make sense to you?
