GeoPackage Raster WEBP support

Easy fix?:No Copied to github as #:28901


I created a GeoPackage with rasterfiles using gdal_translate on Linux. As imageformat I chose WEBP.
While in QGIS on Linux I had no issues, I could open the GeoPackage on a Windows-system with QGIS 3.4.4.,
but there was no data displayed. Using gdalinfo from that QGIS-installation I got the output, that
WEBP isn't supported.
As I think, it's a thing how gdal is compiled, my question is if it would be possible to add that in a
future version. Or are there maybe licensing/technical reasons not to do so?

Thanks in advance,

Is this a QGIS issue? It looks more like an upstream one, btw, I'm changing category to Windows packaging.
