Did you (or anyone else) try and succeed with PyQt and QtWebKit-NG?

My compilations from source for 
PyQt-5.7.1/sip-4.19/Qt-5.7.1/QtWebKit[stable] on Ubuntu 14.04 segfault 
consistently in libQt5WebKit.so

I'm debugging the root cause, but I'd be interested to hear other 
peoples experience (configuration options etc) for comparison.

Florian mentioned it should work with LD_PRELOAD 
although it's not clear to me if that was just to circumvent system 
installed qt/webkit components or for another reason.
