As mentioned by the error message, you need an updated version of glib-devel.
On debian, you need to install libglib2.0-dev (version >= 2.36.0) package, probably from the unstable (or maybe experimental) repositories.
If you want to use the scripts mentioned by the trac page you need to get webkit from git or SVN.
