webkit-gtk2 wants gnome-config to build gstreamer to support video. 
You can disable the VIDEO option in the webkit-gtk2 config settings, or 
just disable HELPBROWSER in the graphics/gimp-app port.  Last I looked, 
the help was very outdated anyway.

Don't know why the webkit-gtk2 build dies, though.
