Just for your information: I successfully built GnuCash with webkit on a
SuSE 11.0 machine. A proper webkit is not part of the SuSE 11.0 distro, but I
got a RPM easily from http://software.opensuse.org/ (libwebkit-1_0-1-1.0.1).

The most recent version of webkit (1.1.4) from libwebkit.org does not
build out of the box because of libsoup being too old (2.2, required 2.4).
This is not an issue since GnuCash works fine with webkit 1.0.1.
But if we use it for 2.4 then we might have to worry about different versions.
