Well, I built it successfully with help from Nilesh and mic is detected 
(camera was not detected) in webrtc tests, though audio was not working 
in jitsi.

Built deps are here https://people.debian.org/~praveen/gstwebrtc/

I was very curious to test is as missing webrtc support in epiphany is 
the major missing feature in epiphany. I use it as my main browser for 
all other things.

Anyway I also discovered falkon browser by KDE which already has webrtc 
support (though they are probably unaware of the license 
incompatibility as I can see falkon is also under GPL).
