[webkit-gtk] libwebkit2gtk and gstreamer-plugins dependencies

I want to install liferea RSS reader on Debian 12. Liferea depends on
libwebkit2gtk-4.0-37, which in turn depends on huge number of
gstreamer-plugins packages, and even tools for ripping CDs.

Since I don't intend to use liferea for anything more than to read RSS,
I am wondering if it would be possible to reduce the number of dependent
packages, and perhaps compile libwebkit2gtk without all the media plugins ?

I am trying to have minimal install, without unnecessary dependencies.

thank you,
