Both the official Apple WebKit and the Cairo build use various support
libraries to provide various features. The Cairo build has jpeg and
png libraries, but in all other respects is comparable to what you
would need for the official release.
If you don't need the graphical features provided by the WebCore
DLL. This library will still require the ICU libraries and CFlite,
but does not need cURL, Cairo, or jpeg and png.
static CFlite and custom ICU libraries. Someone was interested in
doing this (check the mailing list archives), and apparently you can
drasticaly slim down the size of ICU by selectively excludig languages
and features that aren't germane to your project.
Ubfortunately, I did not create CFlite static build targets, but it
should be easy to add this to your local build.
