The good news: The warnings are gone and things have improved:

    WebKit is now built (1h:27m:57s).
    To run GtkLauncher with this newly-built code, use the
    "Tools/Scripts/run-launcher" script.

The bad news is that the build time is still 1 hour (and a handful of
minutes) greater than it used to be. :(

Thanks and take care.
