This is failing on various official architectures, so bumping to serious.

10:34 <@    pochu> berto: webkit failed on armhf
10:37 <     berto> pochu: yes, I don't quite see the error
10:37 <     berto> I see some gtk-doc warnings
10:37 <     berto> but I didn't check in detail
10:39 <@    pochu> berto: I think the warnings from gtkdoc-scangobj might be the cause
10:39 <@    pochu> they are not in e.g. i386 where the build succeeded
10:39 <@    pochu> and we abort on gtkdoc warnings
10:39 <@    pochu> see the last line of Tools/gtk/generate-gtkdoc

10:40 <@    pochu> I don't know why we got those warnings though
10:40 <     berto> ah we abort on warnings
10:40 <     berto> ok

10:41 <     berto> looks like a glib problem actually

There are some warnings on the documentation build, and generate-gtkdoc aborts on
warnings. We need to find why we're getting those warnings. Apparently they may be
a glib problem, though I haven't investigated.
