To be clear, it's not possible. You have to create your own port if you 
don't want to use an existing one. Since you're using Linux, you might 
want to use the WPE port. That's the minimal embedded Linux port with 
no toolkit dependency.

They are independent. You can delete the WebKit folder if you're only 
going to be building WebKit2.
