[xiphos-devel] Debian testing, gtkhtml, webkit editor, waf

Debian testing has seemingly done away with gtkhtml. Xiphos compiles
and works just fine though with the webkit based editor. Unfortunately
the webkit based editor is not an automatic choice in absence of the
gtkhtml library, but needs to be called as an option. 

My questions:

1) Can waf get easily fixed to incorporate an automatic search for
webkit-editor as an alternative to gtkhtml-editor?

2) Is there an way of making waf list all options available for
compiling - it took me a considerable time to figure out what to do
when the ordinary compile failed.
