Thank you for the useful hint, but in the meantime I've managed to apply
a nasty, stinky hack on the webkit-sharp sources to get them compiled.

Editing webkit-sharp.dll.config.in is in fact not enough. You also have
to alter webkit-sharp-sources.xml like this:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
  <api filename="webkit-sharp-api.raw">
    <library name="webkit-1.0">
      <namespace name="WebKit">

The path to the include files for webkit has changed, too. Of course,
you have to install the appropriate devel package (for openSuSE 12.3 /
64bit, this is libwebkitgtk-devel-1.10.2-3.2.1.x86_64) before
runnnig ./configure. The prefix path shall be /usr. Then everything
compiles fine.

☠ PLEASE NOTE ☠ I still haven't checked whether my app now works fine.
At least I now have a patched (or rather, hacked) webkit-sharp. I will
keep you up to date.

Kind regards
