[webkit-gtk] Need help in building on Ubuntu 12.10

Hi there,

I am following instructions at http://trac.webkit.org/wiki/BuildingGtk 
to build webkit. I am getting error

configure: error: Package requirements (cairo-ft
                   fontconfig >= 2.4
                   freetype2 >= 9.0
                   harfbuzz) were not met:

No package 'harfbuzz' found

For my current problem, I would rather not build as I am using webkit 
just as a browser client. Got a problem where webkit does not seem not 
to be working for a url when everything else seems to be working 
including firefox/chrome/wget etc. I want to enable logging if possible 
and see where/what happens. The page at 
says I need to use enable-debug build to enable logs. Is there any 
alternative way to figure out where webkit is stalling or get log 
information from webkit?

Unfortunately url is on private network and can not be shared and 
problem seems to be happening only for this url. No javascript errors in 
firebug console when using firebug. wget command saves the page as 
expected with status code 200.

Many thanks in advance,
