WebKit in unstable

Thanks to whoever ftp-master who did the review and approval, WebKit is
now in unstable. It has not yet been built on all architectures, but
several FTBFSes have already shown up :

- on arm[1], because #if defined(arm) doesn’t seem to do much with our
  toolchain, and because gcc doesn’t pack a simple struct such as
  struct { short x ; } on arm, while it obviously does by default on all
  other architectures,
- on hppa[2], apparently because of a kernel bug[3],
- on s390[4], maybe fixable by using gcc 4.2.

I already fixed the arm issue in our git tree, but am waiting for the
last buildds to keep up before uploading a new release, in case some
other architecture would fail to build. I’d be very much thankful if
some people with alpha, x86_64, ia64, mips, or powerpc machines could do
some basic testing with /usr/lib/WebKit/GdkLauncher and
/usr/lib/WebKit/QtLauncher and report any problem (BTS preferred).
