I have a fix for that:

# fix webkit harfbuzz
WBK="qtwebengine/src/3rdparty/chromium/third_party/WebKit/Source/platform/fonts/    shaping/"

find $WBK -regex ".*\.\(cpp\|h\)$" -exec \
  sed -i "s%#include <hb.h>%#include \"$HBDIR/hb.h\"%" {} \;

find $WBK -regex ".*\.\(cpp\|h\)$" -exec \
  sed -i "s%#include <hb-ot.h>%#include \"$HBDIR/hb-ot.h\"%" {} \;

Note that this is still building for me though, so don't be surprised
if it fails somewhere else:



As usual, this being a 1.3.x release, I haven't even compiled this
kernel yet.  So if it works, you should be doubly impressed.
