Rolling back to the previous version re-enables building applications w/ webkit (Balsa in my case):

sudo apt-get install libwebkit2gtk-4.0-dev=2.20.1-1 libwebkit2gtk-4.0-37=2.20.1-1 gir1.2-webkit2-4.0=2.20.1-1 libjavascriptcoregtk-4.0-dev=2.20.1-1 gir1.2-javascriptcoregtk-4.0=2.20.1-1 libjavascriptcoregtk-4.0-18=2.20.1-1

Cannot build Bookworm on bionic as it depends on libwebkit2gtk-4.0-dev.

I hit this while trying to release Bookworm for Elementary OS Juno which is based on bionic.
