On ubuntu, you just have to install a libwebkitgtk (or similarly named) package,
there is no need to build it.
You can look at the source code of other software that depend on libwebkitgtk package :
apt-cache rdepends libwebkitgtk-3.0-0
apt-cache rdepends libwebkitgtk-1.0-0
and then install the source package to read the code :
apt-get source xxxxx

(provided you have enabled source repositories on your system preferences).
