Apropos webkit instead of gtkhtml, Gnucash-2.3.5's configure demands  
gtkhtml even with html-engine=webkit. The error when it's not present  

checking GOFFICE_LIBS... -L/opt/gnucash-2.3.x/lib -lgoffice-0.8
checking for libgtkhtml-3.14... no
configure: error: Goffice uses Cairo/GtkPrint but didn't find GtkHTML  
with GtkPrint support

Is that because webkit integration isn't complete yet, or because needs to be adjusted?
