[Qgis-developer] Mac build missing QtWebKit.framework

Ah, that was intentional, because Qgis doesn't use it.  There was a  
similar issue with someone needing some Qt sql plugins (still haven't  
figured that out).

Odd that it worked in preview 2, because I didn't include it in that  
either.  And it doesn't look like Tom's all-in-one binary includes it.

I'm hesitatant to include it.  My main consideration is size -  
QtWebKit adds a whopping 25MB to Qgis (almost a quarter of its current  
size).  hmmm...

I'll let my brain ponder this...  I'm a little scattered right now  
between GRASS and Qgis issues...

All generalizations are dangerous, even this one.
