Description arno. 2010-02-26 14:18:38 PST
currently, webkit-build parses argument it knows about, and reformats them to pass them to autogen.sh.
But there is no way to pass arguments to autogen.sh if webkit-build does not know about them.
For example, we may want, occasionally, to call autogen.sh with --enable-gtk-doc argument.

Maybe we can just pass unknown arguments to autogen.sh, in the same way qt passes unknown arguments to qmake.
