In addition to Mark's comments, you might consider looking at the
various Linux distributions.  For example, Debian (the only
distribution I really keep track of) includes the epiphany browser
(for Gnome), which uses WebKit.

I'm not sure how up-to-date they keep WebKit, but you could certainly
contact the WebKit maintainer (or equivalent on your favorite
distribution) to see.

It looks like there was an Alioth WebKit project started to track
nightlies (http://alioth.debian.org/projects/pkg-webkit/), but it
doesn't seem to have much activity.  You might contact them for help
in configuring local builds.

Hope that helps,
