swt-gtk Build-Depends on libwebkitgtk-dev, which is deprecated in favor of
libwebkit2gtk-4.0-dev (provided in Debian by webkit2gtk). Please drop

The package does build successfully without the libwebkitgtk-dev

It feels to me like the libswt-webkit-gtk-3-jni was already broken

the deprecated libraries which are being removed.)

If you have any question don't hesitate to ask.
