You can use the WEBKIT2_PAUSE_WEB_PROCESS_ON_LAUNCH environment variable
to make it pause for 30 seconds on start or you can use the environment
variable WEB_PROCESS_CMD_PREFIX to attach gdbserver to it.

Check: https://trac.webkit.org/wiki/WebKitGTK/Debugging

But note that this environment variables only work if you enable the
CMake option -DDEVELOPER_MODE=ON at build time.
