For gnucash, get upstream to support the newer webkit-gtk.
They are not API compatible and gnucash still uses the old API.

For gnucash-docs, we could either make the yelp3 dependency optional
(since it's basically just HTML files, I think) or allow the old
yelp(2) as an option. I'm not sure how much that would help, that one
pulls in xulrunner192, which isn't a small package either.
