indeed the webkitgkt slackbuild does not compile anymore.
the problem is not a loop, as you describe it - it just looks like a loop, as the same warning is displayed again and again (caused by a often used function). when you pause the compile from time to time, you will see that the caller function changes.
my build fails in an xpath module, later in the build. i did some investigation on that. that was when i compiled webkitgtk for crux linux, causing the same error and finally i got it running by patching the source.
to make it really, really worse, the build process nowadays depends on python and ruby. i don't know the reason and i actually don't care anymore - for me this software and it's build process is a pile of shit. but as there is no sane alternative i still use it (in conjunction with the surf browser of the suckless people.).
to make it short: if this package will be updated, i am afraid it will take a lot of work.
