There isn't a "Qt Phonon" and "KDE Phonon", Qt simply ships with an older 
version of Phonon than the stand-alone release.

QtWebKit has the same model, with older, and more stable, releases shipped in 
Qt in src/3rdparty, but also more up to date stand-alone releases┬╣. AFAIK.

So either just build and install Qt with its (slightly outdated but fully 
usable) Phonon and QtWebKit, or build them externally after Qt.

That aside, I heard that QtWebKit tried switching to QtMultimedia temporarily, 
but it was reverted because it caused a lot of regressions. But it might have 
gotten better now and gotten switched back, I don't follow QtWebKit 
development very closely.
