That, and the related/duplicate 196333 and 195500 (webkit-gtk3).

Great for those who do not check bugzilla on a daily basis :)

Those options are gone with the update to webkit-gtk 2.4.8 (in both
the -gtk2 and the -gtk3 port).
There had been two problems, one related to GNU ar and the other one
when building with non-default OPTIONS. The latter one has been resolved
in r376609, the former one has not been fixed yet - despite rather
distinct error messages, the problems have been mixed up in the PRs.

Is any gnome@ committer around to commit the rest of the fixes?
