[webkit-gtk] How to use/build latest stable version of libwebkitgtk

Lacking instructions on building the stable release I tried to follow the
instructions for building from git repo instead (unfortunately not sure how
to determine which commit corresponds to a particular release, there appear
to be no tags in the git repo).
So I was just trying to build 'master'.
When I do the 'updage libs' step, I get this:
kdvolder at lebun:~/git/WebKit$ Tools/Scripts/update-webkitgtk-libs
Updating GTK+ port dependencies using jhbuild...
HEAD is now at c0cb461... Updated Spanish translation
WARNING: gnome-autogen.sh not available (usually part of package
WARNING: yelp-tools not available (usually part of package 'yelp-tools')
Configuring jhbuild without autotools
Now type `make' to compile jhbuild
make: Entering directory
msgfmt -o ca.mo ca.po
make: msgfmt: Command not found

raise Exception('jhbuild configure failed with return code: %i' %
Exception: jhbuild configure failed with return code: 2
Running jhbuild-wrapper build failed.

Any ideas what's going wrong?
