[webkit-gtk] Crazy-long build times in GNOME 3.8??

Given all the warnings, I'm fairly certain you got to use the GCC 4.8
compiler. The bug causing the warnings is already being worked on[1].

Can you try enforcing the 4.7 version of the GCC compiler if available?
Hopefully that'll bring down the long build time as well (which, again
hopefully, is due to all the warnings).
