I did not have -O3 in my cflags because

A> most packages have an appropriate -O level set
B> Some packages are sensitive to the optimization flag and will
missbehave if set,
C> letting the optimization level default to whatever should always be
safe.

-> therefore I did not have any optimization set...

So therefore webkit-gtk decides to be a prissy little cunt and throws an
error because it didn't have an optimization flag set, who the hell do
those developers think they are? If you think you should have an
optimization flag  SET IT!!! Just provide an override, throwing an error
just because the user was lazy in compiling it is not acceptable. =|
