[blfs-support] WebKitGTK+-2.4.9 really requires Ruby?

For the older WebKitGTK+-2.4.9 (assume a GTK+2 build here):


Ruby-2.2.2 is listed as a required dependency. But, I can't seem
to find this requirement mentioned anywhere except on LFS:


Is Ruby really required, or is this just for those who intend to
run Gnome? What later uses the Ruby WebKitGTK+ bindings?

Obviously not a big deal either way given that Ruby itself doesn't
have any significant dependencies.

  Thanks in advance,
