It's a little finer grained than that.  IIUC QtWebKit depends on Phonon, 
Phonon depends on lower-level parts of Qt.

I assume it would be something to the effect of Qt's configure script 
automatically picks up the system Phonon if present, otherwise it uses it's 
built-in copy of Phonon.  QtWebKit when being built would simply build against 
which phonon the configure script for Qt used.

That's how I would do it anyways.  If I were a packager I would simply make Qt 
depend on phonon (the separate type) and make sure it is built with whatever 
flag tells it to ignore its built-in phonon.
