There are a few issues that make it hard to build WebKitGTK+. One is the requirement for a patched version of make and another is that debug builds take a long time and typically consume a lot of memory.

Additionally, there are many small things that can go wrong when building WebKitGTK+ for the first time. This bug is about fixing all those issues so that it's a simple and easy as possible to build the library.

The dependencies issue isn't such a big deal, but perhaps we should include a special jhbuild that has the dependency delta from the previous stable version of Ubuntu.
