Hi Luciano !

First, welcome in Sailfish development !

I cannot help you in this SSH issue since it seems that everybody can have this issue, 
and it can be caused by very different reasons (and sometimes it just happens 
randomly). Most of the time I reboot the SDK and the VMs and it works. Do you mind 
providing us your host architecture and OS (Windows, Linux, Mac ?). Maybe some 
other people could help there.

About the second issue, I have the regret to tell you that you are doing it wrong, as 
you cannot mix Qt 4 and Qt 5. Search for packages called libqtwebkit5, libqtwebkit5-
devel, libqtwebkit5-widgets, libqtwebkit5-widgets-devel etc. About location, you should 
use qt5-qtlocation, qt5-qtlocation-devel.

Install them in your SDK, and add them in the spec file and it _should_ work, minus 
some code adaptation. Webkit is good to do webscrapping though, I don't think that 
you have to use a Regexp inside, as you will write a lot of boilerplate code to manage 
the issue where the webdeveloper did forget to add a / to <img /> or <br/> ...
