Hi there.
The dependencies of webkitgtk2 are seriously messed up, at least since the addition of geoclue2.
This thing, wahtever it does, depends on networkmanager, which in turn depends on a whole lot of other crap that has absolutely nothing to do with a browser or rendering engine.

Seriously, it's nice that you want to add features, but please keep the dependencies sane.

Additional info:
* package version(s)
* config and/or log files etc.
This is what my update looked like, at least half of this is not currently installed on my system:
Packages (12): geoclue2-2.1.8-1 hunspell-1.3.3-1 js17-17.0.0-1 json-glib-1.0.2-1 libevdev-1.2.2-1 libice-1.0.9-1
libmm-glib-1.2.0-3 libxft-2.3.2-1 networkmanager- polkit-0.112-2 sqlite-3.8.5-1

This task depends upon

Gonna split libnm from networkmanager and have geoclue2 depend on that.
