libjavascriptcore doesn't use gtk, so it's shared. WebCore was split
into two libraries (see https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=60539),
a small library that only contains the files using gtk+ and another one
with all other files. Only the former is built twice. And some webkit2
files are built again with the plugin process too.

WebKitPluginProcess is 21MB here.
