WebKit Debug build over Ubuntu 64bit machines should've been fine
without any alteration.

I had troubles for building WebKit Debug over Ubuntu 32bit (3GB RAM),
but got it working by disabling SVG related features:
e.g.,) $> ./Tools/Scripts/build-webkit --efl --debug --no-svg --no-svg-fonts

Hope this helps for those who have similar problems when building WebKit Debug.
