WebKit is already supported in the modulesets that come with jhbuild. It's pretty easy (via the jhbuild customizations, see "configuration file" in the docs) to change the settings if the defaults that Fred likes don't work for you -- but he's spent a lot of time with it, so  be sure to try his defaults first. I doubt that there's much need to collaborate on a config file, but if enough folks think that the defaults need to be different, talk to Fred on his list.

(And, for a shameless plug, if you're building WebKit for quartz and don't like the gtk-osx defaults, talk to me on my list, gtk-osx-users-list).
