Hello there,

I would prefer if I can download a deb package and install it, my 
searches so far has failed. So decided to build it myself. This is on 
ubuntu 12.10.

I downloaded the WebKitGtk+ 2.0.0 tarball from webkitgtk.org. Could not 
figure out how to build it. If I run configure it fails with following error

checking for GLIB - version >= 2.36.0... no
*** Could not run GLIB test program, checking why...
*** The test program failed to compile or link. See the file config.log 
for the
*** exact error that occured. This usually means GLIB is incorrectly 
configure: error: You need the GLib dev tools in your path

If I try to follow instructions from 
http://trac.webkit.org/wiki/BuildingGtk, it fails because in exploded 
tarball, Tools/Scripts directory does not contain any of the scripts 

I was able to build webkit from git repository earlier on this machine, 
so it has most of the stuff, but looks like dependencies have changed.

Any steps to build or help is appreciated.
