Had done one build, using

cp -a webkitgtk-2.4.5 webkitgtk-2.4.5-1

and building each (linked to gtk+2 or 3) in different sources.

Then, realized that instead, could use two build dirs inside the same source dir (found it would increase user difficulty, if at the same level as the source dir).

This needed an extra command for the docs, but decreased the totla build size by 0.1 GB.

Docs do not need to be versioned anymore, if not wanted, because the same applies to the two versions (with gtk+2 or 3).

To facilitate user reading, separated the builds in two subsections taht can be used independently, or in sequency.

I think poppler build with the two Qts 4 and/or 5 should be modified accordongly. Of course this is valid only if you aprove what I did with webkitgtk.

I have still to clen some parts (Gtk+ 2 ==> <application>Gtk+ 2</application>, and other similar issues.

But first, would like to see the reception of what I did, because tiding up now is useless if you ask me to revert.

I am having a problem with this host/VM combination, that freezes everything with large packages. It did with LO, and I gave up fixing it. Yesterday, I did everything in the VM, intead of ssh, but used -j1. so it takes over 6 hours for each build. Before, even with -j2, it crashed. This VMPlayer need to be patched, for the last kerne, perhaps this is the problem.

Comments are gratefully appreciated, thanks.

Fixed at r14111.
