The deps of a given software can vary upon versions.

Here is the end of README.deps in the source archive of gncash-2.6.17:

--- ️cut here ---

  required		Version

glib2			2.28.0
gtk+2			2.24.0
guile			1.8.5 or 2.0.0
libgnomecanvas		2.0
[lib]goffice		0.7.0
libxml2			2.5.10
swig			2.0.10			Only required to build from git
						or SVN.
webkit			1.0

aqbanking		4.0.0			 online banking; also requires
						 gwehywfar and ktoblzcheck

						 least one of libdbd-sqlite3,
						 libdbd-mysql, or libdbd-pgsql

libofx			0.9.0			 OFX/QFX import

  at runtime, required
a gsettings backend to store the gnucash global preferences in
This backend is platform dependent.
- linux:        dconf
- windows:      registry
- osx/quarz:    plists

Note that the osx and windows backends are built-in in gio for their
respective platforms. On linux and similar systems, the dconf package
should be installed.

  at runtime, suggested
isocodes: translation of currency names

As you can see, the webkit version requested is, not 2.

But webkitg2gtk is webkit 2, not 1!
