I had a quick look at the webkit patch. Webkit is a strange beast with issues
when building with parallelism activated. When building version 2.4.3, I
encountered the bug mentioned in the commit log, and when I bumped to 2.4.5,
I've found more parallel build issues (and some ARM ASM ones too).

It looks like version 2.6.0 is on its way. The build system now uses cmake
instead of autotools. I'll try a bump to 2.5.90 to see if the issues are

BTW, why is this package still called "webkit" whereas it is in fact
