That is even older (webkit 1.11.5).. don't use this please.

Your best bet is to compile the last stable tarball using the
toolchain you have generated.

To do that look for a file named toolchainfile.cmake in your buildroot
output dir. Usually its at output/host/usr/share/buildroot/toolchainfile.cmake

And build the last stable tarball passing that toolchainfile.cmake like this

$ mkdir build
$ cd build
$ cmake -DPORT=GTK -DCMAKE_TOOLCHAIN_FILE=/full/path/to/buildroo/toolchainfile.cmake ..

If you get errors regarding missing libraries you have to build that libraries with
buildroot first.
