[Freewx-maint] Bug#738849: Please enable webview support for wx3.0

Package: libwxgtk3.0-0
Severity: serious

The wx3.0 package *should* depend from libwebkitgtk-3.0-dev.

The last boinc release needs webwview support, and I finally spotted why I didn't succeed in building it on a clean debian environment.
Your build log clearly says that you are enabling webview

checking for --enable-printarch... yes
checking for --enable-svg... yes
checking for --enable-webkit... yes
checking for --enable-webview... yes
checking for --enable-graphics_ctx... yes

BUT after that you can see it gets disabled

checking for linux/joystick.h... yes
checking for python... /usr/bin/python
configure: WARNING: webkitgtk not found.
configure: WARNING: WebKit not available, disabling wxWebView
checking for WEBKIT... checking for CAIRO... yes
checking for cairo_push_group... yes

boinc fails with this log, while building with a custom wx3.0 library doesn't fail.
I can upload on mentors or a debdiff here if needed.
