You're trying to do something unsupported that nobody has ever managed to do successfully before, so hiring a software developer would certainly be advisable. Notice that in bug #181695, the developer did not manage to get JavaScript working at all. WebKit is intended to be installed as a shared library; if you build it as a static library, you're going to effectively have 4-5 different copies of it installed, one static linked into each secondary process, so the already-huge installed size will balloon.

You're also disabling a ton of unsupported hidden build flags, so even if you were trying to do a shared library build, I wouldn't expect it to work.

I guess it wants you to tell it where to install it.
