webkit-gtk: update to version 1.1.7, build from stable release rather than nightly builds

Reported by: dbevans (David B. Evans) Owned by: myschizobuddy@…
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version: 1.7.1
Keywords: Cc:
Port: webkit-gtk


port webkit-gtk currently builds from unstable nightly snapshots of svn trunk. However, stable releases are available at and version 1.1.7 has just been released.

The GNOME project among others build from these releases using their jhbuild system.

Attached is a proposed patch to the current Portfile that builds with only a minor patch and updates webkit-gtk to the 1.1.7 release. Committing this patch should close outstanding tickets #17468, #19346 and possibly #19089.

  • updates to stable release version 1.1.7
  • dependencies and configuration updated to reflect build defaults in configure
  • variants adjusted to conform to configuration defaults
    • +video is now the default so make variant +no_video instead
    • add new +svg_filters variant, all other svg on by default
    • add new +gnome_keyring to enable this optional support -- off by default
  • patch to autotools/webkit.m4 to correctly set icu library link options requires use of autoconf to correctly rebuild configure.
  • since I am proposing to change the versioning system for this port to be that used with the release versions, epoch is incremented to 1 to ensure proper version comparison on upgrade.
  • livecheck added

If you concur with these changes, I will commit the patch. In addition, if it would be helpful to you in keeping this port up to date, I am willing to be co-maintainer with you or perhaps making the port openmaintainer would be sufficient.

I'm on vacation and don't have access to my mac. If you want you can be co-maintainer of this and my other ports. Hopefully after a month or two i'll be back
