Note that you can get rid of many dependencies if you disable some WebKit features. E.g. some of these jhbuild modules are needed only for WebRTC, and disabling HTML5 video/audio will cut off a lot of stuff further.

For the record, install-dependencies includes packages that may be needed to build jhbuild modules mentioned above, but not necessary for WebKit itself.

You can consult to existing packages of WebKitGTK+ to get better picture of build-time and run-time dependencies
