armel has been one of the sore points of maintaining WebKit in Debian.
It often fails to build the package because of lack of memory or disk
space. I'm told by my colleague Hector Oron that WebKit's utility for
armel is quite limited, given it's often used headless rather than
providing a graphical user interface of some kind
The latest experimental version failed on armel but it also failed on
armhf (though admittedly in different ways, it seems that the armel one
got killed on a timeout while the armhf one ran out of disk space).
