Trouble building and using webkit2gtk-5.0-debug

There is the webkit2gtk-5.0 package. Let's say I want a backtrace with proper debug symbols. Using https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Debuginfod works fine, but building it myself does not:
Among other things, I tried a modified pkgbuild (see bottom), but running my program under gdb prints this:

warning: Could not find DWO CU Source/WebKit/CMakeFiles/WebKit.dir/__/__/DerivedSources/WebKit/AutomationBackendDispatchers.cpp.dwo(0xcd08e950709238c9) referenced by CU at offset 0x23 [in module /usr/lib/debug/usr/lib/libwebkit2gtk-5.0.so.0.0.0.debug]
Dwarf Error: unexpected tag 'DW_TAG_skeleton_unit' at offset 0x23 [in module /usr/lib/debug/usr/lib/libwebkit2gtk-5.0.so.0.0.0.debug]

[Thread debugging using libthread_db enabled]

The file
/path/to/PKGBUILD/src/build/Source/WebKit/CMakeFiles/WebKit.dir/__/__/DerivedSources/WebKit/AutomationBackendDispatchers.cpp.dwo
exists, so I tried to cd into  "/path/to/PKGBUILD/src/build" and then ran gdb. No warning gets printed, but gdb get killed by OOM, because it needs more memory than my machine has, way more than with the debuginfod stuff.

Any ideas? Is this a bug? Where can I find how the debuginfod stuff gets build?

Re: Trouble building and using webkit2gtk-5.0-debug

Did you build in a clean chroot/container? That's how all packages in the repos are built.

I did not. I will try that and report the result tomorrow.
