webkit-gtk 1.1.10 does work with osx 10.4 and 10.5. There are a bunch  
of tweaks that fink uses to get around various issues (package name:  
webkit-1.0.2, version 1.1.10).

There are a bunch of issues with the webkit-gtk JIT compiler in  
versions 1.1.10 - 1.1.14 which prevent building recent webkit-gtk  
versions on osx 10.6. Curiously, a prerelease snapshot of 1.0.1 works  
for me on 10.6, so that's what I'm using at the moment.
