As far as I can tell, WebKitGTK 2.34.4 doesn't yet exist.  The newest
version available at <https://www.webkitgtk.org/releases/>, and the only
release version that has fixed the announced security flaws, is 2.34.1,
which is the one that we're failing to build successfully with GCC 7.5.

The version of WebKitGTK that I see on 'core-updates-frozen' is not
2.34.4, but rather 2.32.4, which is the version we had on 'master'
before the (apparently untested) security update commit 8797a07ac0.

Unfortunately that version is vulnerable to CVE-2021-30846,
CVE-2021-30851, and CVE-2021-42762, according to

Am I missing something?

I don't have time to work on this today, but I have two suggestions:
(1) look in the upstream git repo for updates that might fix this issue,
or (2) try using a newer C++ compiler.

Anyway, thanks very much for looking into it.


Disinformation flourishes because many people care deeply about injustice
but very few check the facts.  Ask me about <https://stallmansupport.org>.
