patch to respect LINGUAS
It is generally expected that modern linux packages honor the LINGUAS environment variable to limit the set of translations that get built. For example, if LINGUAS="en ru de", then at most only the Englush, Russian, and German translations of messages etc. would be built; an empty or undefined LINGUAS is typically interpreted as "all available translations".
Packages that use a copy of intltool's Makefile.in.in get this capability for free (see http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~intltool/intltool/trunk/view/head:/Makefile.in.in). Since webkit-gtk uses a rather non-standard build system, a patch is needed.
Note that in the attached patch, PO_LINGUAS, USER_LINGUAS, and USE_LINGUAS are added to the root GNUmakefile.am to ensure that they are defined before MOFILES in the root GNUmakefile due to the way that automake interprets "+=".
There's already an effort to make the library intltool compliant: https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=45321
Would that fix the issue as well? I'm not opposed to this patch, but could you make it against the SVN checkout and include a changelog? See http://www.webkit.org/coding/contributing.html

Yes; if webkit-gtk used intltool's Makefile.in.in, then it would treat LINGUAS like all other intltool-using projects, and my patch would not be needed.

Sure, patch with changelogs attached.
