AFAIK this is the correct one, as in the most advanced.

Phonon can't be treated like one of the other system libraries since it 
depends on Qt itself, i.e. it can't be installed prior to building Qt.

So it is more a matter of either not needing the symbols during build or not 
install the interface libraries (doesn't have to build backends in any case).
