Yeah I forgot to throw in what I was actually thinking:

Phonon depends on QtCore.  (That's it, right?  Just QtCore?)
QtCore does not depend on Phonon.  Therefore we can break that dependency 
chain i.e.

Qt depends on QtCore and all the rest.
Phonon depends on QtCore
QtWebKit depends on Phonon.

Which is workable during the build.

But that would imply splitting up Qt into QtCore and the rest of the modules 
if we want to install Phonon separately.  It may be easier just to install 
Phonon as part of Qt after all then. :-/
