Hi Berto

Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately the MiniBrowser fails with a Bus
Error. The problem doesn't appear to be with webkit though. gdb says the
error is occuring in gtk and the other gtk apps I've tried failed
similarly. I'll try to track down the gtk issue next.

The other potential issue with webkit2gtk is that bmalloc assumes 4k
pages and sparc64 has 8k pages. Does the Debian package use bmalloc by
default? If so it will have to be disabled for sparc64 and use the
system malloc instead. If you're not sure I'll verify what it's doing
after I look at gtk.
