I've tried out wip/webkit-gtk with finance/gnucash, and it works fine.
(I had to fix webkit-gtk's PLIST, the fix is committed.)

I've moved webkit-gtk* to webkit1-gtk* and used wip/webkit-gtk for
updating www/webkit-gtk.

I've removed www/webkit-gtk3 for now; someone interested, please
package it again.

Also, if you are currently using a package using webkit1-gtk, try
building it with webkit-gtk (just change the include
line in the Makefile) and report if it builds and works fine.

How about WebKit2 API?

* WebKitGTK+ supports GTK2 and GTK3
* WebKitGTK+ supports WebKit1 and WebKit2 API
* WebKit2 API is the default API for WebKitGTK+ 2.0
* WebKitGTK+ 1.5.90 switch to GTK+3 by default

www/webkit-gtk is updated to 2.x, but WebKit2 API is disabled.
I wondered that WebKit2 API should be provided as www/webkit2-gtk* packages.
But there is naming confusion now, webkit1-gtk* packages provide WebKitGTK+
version 1.x, not meaning WebKit1 API.

Any thought?
