Emacs with xwidgets support needs webkit2gtk-4.0, which for us means the variant built with libsoup2 on core-updates-frozen. I've changed the inputs in the two affected Emacs packages and added to the comment about where webkitgtk-with-libsoup2 is used. Apologies if the formatting/style of the commit message is off, wasn't sure how best to do this.

Pushed with some minor changes as 

- Removed copyright lines.
- Edited commit message a bit:
  - Wrapped to 72 characters, the git (or Linux?) convention
  - Shortened title as well: we often exceed the conventional 50 
  characters, but try to keep it short still
  - Wrote ‘{,-next-pgtk}’: valid variable names like 
  ‘foo-tools/static’ exist
  - Wrote ‘(var1, var2)’ instead of ‘(var1 and var2)’.
