libproxy B-D on webkitgtk

Hi GNOME maintainers!

I'm one of the porters who takes care of the m68k and sh4 ports of
Debian and I am currently trying to get a current version of libproxy
to build on these architectures.

Unfortunately, this seems to be impossible at the moment since libproxy
has a build dependency on webkitgtk which takes huge amounts of memory
to compile and eventually fails:

/usr/bin/ld: failed to set dynamic section sizes: Memory exhausted
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status
make[2]: *** [libwebkitgtk-3.0.la] Error 1
make[1]: *** [all] Error 2
GNUmakefile:40282: recipe for target 'libwebkitgtk-3.0.la' failed
make[2]: Leaving directory '/«PKGBUILDDIR»/build-3.0'
GNUmakefile:25662: recipe for target 'all' failed
make[1]: Leaving directory '/«PKGBUILDDIR»/build-3.0'
debian/rules:121: recipe for target 'build-stamp' failed
make: *** [build-stamp] Error 2

This is on a sh4 buildd with 6 GiB of swap and 512 MiB of RAM. I am
currently waiting for my personal sh4 board to arrive in the mail
and can hopefully upgrade the board to more memory or at least
connect an SSD with a very large swap partition.

However, I am still wondering whether the build dependency of
libproxy on webkitgtk is actually really necessary? The problem
is that libproxy has many important reverse dependencies and
we can't build things like graphviz or SANE because of this

Any ideas?

Thanks a lot!
