Just a short FYI that i'm able to build webkit2gtk on my
Slackware64-14.2 VM with 1 vCPU and 2 GB of RAM with 10 additional swap
space (total of 12 GB) using commands that Ponce stated in LQ thread

fallocate -l 10G /temp-swap
chmod 0600 /temp-swap
mkswap /temp-swap
swapon /temp-swap

  MD5SUM check for webkitgtk-2.18.0.tar.xz ... OK
