I've downloaded the latest stable webkitgtk-1.2.7 from and gave it a try on my  
Windows/mingw system, where I also usually build a gnucash windows  

Turns out webkit requires some more tools than what is available as  
pre-compiled windows binaries. Bison and gprof are required and still  
available, but "flex" is required in version 2.5.33 whereas the latest  
windows binary of it on gnuwin32 is 2.5.4. As Phil already wrote,  
because of this it is most probably easier to cross-compile on a Linux  
box with the mingw32 cross compile toolchain.

I propose to collect notes on how to do this on a page in our wiki,
