           Summary: Reduce/ cleanup confgure options
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 528+ (Nightly build)
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Keywords: Gtk
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: WebKit Gtk
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: christian at twotoasts.de

Our build currently has a *lot* of options, in some cases for rather obscure
details. I doubt that most people actually care about those features like the
various svg-foo features. And the build breaks often enough if I try them out
because they are obviously not tested.

That is, I see the benefit in --disable-svg which reduces build time and binary
size. But I doubt the sense in all the fine grained options. If somebody needs
those, let him request options.

There's also things like dashboard, icon-database, html5-storage. Does it make
sense to enable or disable these?
