I don't understand licenses very well, as I'm more interested in programming. I
think the intent was to use the source converter to convert Gecko headers, not
Qt widgets over AppKit (both are great stuff compared with other toolkits, that
we don't like to talk about ;-) ). 

But I would expect that if you adapt a GPL'd source converter, you end up with
a GPL'd source converter. On the other hand, there is no reason why the
generated sources have to be GPL'd, as far as I know. They can have a Mozilla
license header, or whatever you like.
