QtWebKit cannot be built as a static library. This is why it is not included 
in MXE. You might be able to use QTextBrowser for some simple cases.  If you 
need QtWebKit, you will have to build Qt as shared libraries. In the email 
archives, and maybe on github, you'll find previous discussions of this. People 
have had success doing this with Qt 4. It might be worth trying with Qt 5 too.

You could also try Tony's experimental multi-target branch.

Maybe somebody else can respond to this. It would probably be good to have icu 
in MXE, but I haven't tried it myself.
