Description: (this may not be a bug but it may bear checking...)

Building libwebp I encountered the complaint from namcap that
libwebp E: Dependency freeglut detected and not included (libraries ['usr/lib/libglut.so.3'] needed in files ['usr/bin/vwebp'])

so I started to rebuild to control the unwanted dependency when
I realized that the libwebp README says that freeglut is required.
1) OpenGL & OpenGL Utility Toolkit (GLUT)
$ sudo apt-get install freeglut3-dev mesa-common-dev
Mac + XCode:
- These libraries should be available in the OpenGL / GLUT frameworks.

2) (Optional) qcms (Quick Color Management System)

It seems that freeglut should be listed in the depends.

(libwebp is used by webkitgtk which is used by shotwell,
I don't know of any runtime problems; I'm not even using
shotwell myself)
This task depends upon

We don't build with glut installed, so vwebp gets skipped. I can look into making it available.
