I was able to reproduce your error when building webkit2gtk with a
single make job (the default), while it went fine if two jobs or more
were used.

you can try adding a line like this to the SlackBuild (so that it
defaults to use at least two jobs)

 rm -rf $PKG

or you can try also passing a MAKEFLAGS=-j${n} (with n >= 2) to the
SlackBuild to use multiple make jobs.
