SVN trunk: build error error (undefined reference to gnc_html_new)

Hi, I'm trying to build GnuCash from SVN (via git).  I get a build error
which was introduced in the webkit merge (revision 18041); the previous
revision 18037 builds ok.

I am building on Ubuntu 8.04.  I didn't enable webkit, cos I don't have
it installed.

Is this expected?

Thanks in advance
