That's true, but since the JHBuild modulesets exist for a different
purpose, I wouldn't recommend looking at these. They contain stuff that
won't be needed, and do not contain stuff that will be needed.
Instead, it would be better to look at the Build-Depends in Ubuntu's
package. 'sudo apt-get build-dep webkit2gtk' should install everything
or almost everything you need. Alternatively, to make your list, see
 and look for a .debian.tar.xz to see the source for the Ubuntu
package, e.g. , then look at the Build-Depends in the control file.
Of course, you can also just try to build to find out what's missing.
CMake should give you an error message when you are missing a required
dependency. The build should not be allowed to begin until you have
them all installed.
