Hi Rich,

qt5-webkit was listed as required to build both PyQt5 and
python3-PyQt5 when I took them over, and I left the dependency lists
as they were.  I've just tested building them both without it and
didn't see any problems, so I've now moved qt5-webkit to `optional'.

It's quite possible that something still uses qt5-webkit, but not
qtwebengine.  I'll be taking a look at it shortly.
