I went for the simplest fix possible that does not immediately break anything else. Considering the fact that building webkit takes a few hours, i'm not very well-motivated to try anything fancier, unless i absolutely have to.

Poor UTF-8 support in the review module. The text is in UTF-8 in the attachment itself.

What about #ifdef HAVE_WTFHEADERDETECTION_H and modifying these mysterious other-ports-with-buildsystems-that-use-gnu-toolchain-but-refuse-to-use-gnu-autotools-which-do-not-generate-this-header? Well, i guess they'd tell me to fix the autotools-based buildsystem used to build webkitgtk instead, which would be fair enough.

Thing is, 2.4.x is the last version to have autotools, newer webkitgtk uses cmake, and we'll go back to square one.
