You could use an installer package and python2.2 ;-). The only  
alternatives to get WebKit with PackMan are (1) find someone who  
already has WebKit and ask them to send you the WebKit module (the  
directory ..../site-packages/PyObjC/WebKit) and (2) pester the PackMan  
maintainer (aka Jack) to install the WebKit SDK on the machine he uses  
to build the binary packages.

I'm (slowly) finishing up a 1.0 release of PyObjC, and might include a  
PackMan receipe with that release.
