Starting with webkit-gtk+-1.11.90, `eautoreconf` is failing in the `gtkdocize` phase, because required macro GTK_DOC_CHECK is not located inside the configure.ac file anymore and has been moved into Source/autotools/FindDependencies.m4 file.
The project's `autogen.sh` uses following autoreconf command to initialize the autotools stack from clean git checkout:
autoreconf --verbose --install -I Source/autotools $ACLOCAL_FLAGS|| exit $?
and this doesn't seem to be calling gtkdocize at all. Therefore it should be possible to disable this step somehow.
So, use AT_M4DIR="Source/autotools" eautoreconf

We already did that before, but now it breaks like this:
* Running eautoreconf in '/home/tmp/portage/net-libs/webkit-gtk-1.11.90-r300/work/webkitgtk-1.11.90' ...
* Running gtkdocize --copy ... [ !! ]
* Failed Running gtkdocize !
And error from gtkdocize is following:
***** gtkdocize *****
***** PWD: /home/tmp/portage/net-libs/webkit-gtk-1.11.90-r300/work/webkitgtk-1.11.90
***** gtkdocize --copy
gtkdocize: GTK_DOC_CHECK not called in configure.ac
this blocks epiphany-3.8
