Yes, agreed, it doesn't look like that to be the build error, but it really is.
The log URL given above was on one of the build servers which might not have been updated correctly at the
time when it tried to build the package which is why the log is misleading.
As you can see in the log overview (http://buildd.debian-ports.org/status/logs.php?pkg=webkit2gtk&arch=hppa),
we always had issues with building webkit2gtk (time and site constraints, dependency problems, ...),
but I did checked my patch in a clean chroot and it built sucessfully after disabling the debug info.

It would be great if you could apply my patch, then the buildds can produce correct logs in the future.
