 If that's ok with you, it's fine with me.

 I did try, which was why I then used the sed to get gtkhtml-3 to
build.  But that version of gnucash (with the fedora patches) didn't
run, so I doubt my results for all the stages of the build [ it was
without slib, so very different from what we now have ].

 I only ever had the versions of gtkhtml that were in the book.
Actually, my *first* attempt to build it used a sed to change
G_CONST_RETURN to const, but then fell over with other deprecated

 Seems to me that we should just make webkit-1 required.  Thanks for
your input.
