The old gtk port works to some extent and I've got one upgraded to
work under directfb
at the directfb website.

I think what your wanting is a port on top of Gnustep I'm not sure how
different the gnustep libraries are from the libraries used by Webkit.

I'm working right now on upgrading the gtk port refactoring be damned :)

If your this short on time why not mozilla for now they have a small
build minimo that
has like a 12 meg footprint and look at webkit later.
