Thanks Michel for the info. I will check further based on your suggestions.
One more doubt, as you said we can delete WebKit and use Webkit2 alone and
build. Can the same be applied by deleting WebKit2 folder and build WebKit
 if it is possible other than the multi process option will I lose any
other feature, I think major features are part of the webcore, and are
these features coupled with webkit2 or independent?
So that if I write my port I will write for the Api's I need.

Thanks and Regards,

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

Second is webcore necessary to be built before we build webkit2.

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