Since there are no ports depending upon luakit, it is better to just 
update the existing port. Also we have two webkit-gtk3 branches:

www/webkit2-gtk3 - 2.16 (stable branch, supports both apiv1 and apiv2) and
www/webkit-gtk3 - 2.4 (old branch, unsupported upstream, apiv1 only)

If luakit is compatible with both of them, please stick with 2.16 port.
