emerge --info output

Hello there,

Thank you for bumping luakit to 2.3.3 in Gentoo repository. Unfortunately, I've got compilation error:

>>> Compiling source in /var/tmp/portage/www-client/luakit-2.3.3/work/luakit-2.3.3 ...
make -j8 PREFIX=/usr USE_LUAJIT=0 luakit
Package webkit2gtk-4.0 was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `webkit2gtk-4.0.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
Package 'webkit2gtk-4.0', required by 'virtual:world', not found
Package 'javascriptcoregtk-4.0', required by 'virtual:world', not found *** Cannot find required package(s\) to build luakit. Please check you have the above packages installed and try again.  Stop.
 * ERROR: www-client/luakit-2.3.3::gentoo failed (compile phase):
 *   emake failed

emerge --info in attachement.

Best Regards,
