[webkit-dev] Building on Linux

The build instructions haven't changed for the Gdk port since that
wiki page was written. Please note that the instructions say:
"The port is not fully-maintained, but contributors often provide
changes to keep it in sync with the rest of WebKit. This means that
it may not always be in a state where it builds, and even if it
builds, it may not be in a working state."
If you can provide information about what errors you are seeing it
would make it possible to determine whether the problems you are
seeing are due to a missing component in your build environment, or
due to the Gdk port simply being in a state where it does not build.
