First of all I'm sorry to criticize your work again...
It's really great that webkit can be build in parallel again!
This reduces the compile time over here from 7 to 3 hours (using two Intel Atom processors and distcc),
so i agree with you that the result justifies the means in this case.
Nevertheless there are a couple of things wrong with this commit:
(1.) it introduces some whitespace errors(space at end of line and tab instead of spaces)
(2.) --enable-video is in DEPENDS already, any reason to require this dependency on gst-plugins-good?
(3.) The link you provide doesn't give any further link or statement by the webkit maintainers.
Please provide a link to a discussion of the PSAFE problems that makes it clear, that this is a good fix.

Also you still didn't answer the question if you are sure the racing conditions
exist only with gobject-introspection enabled!
I got two errors when compiling this in parallel:
one related to some gir file and one related to linking.
This last one doesn't seem to have anything to do with gobject-introspection!
Also the hack works fine with $MAKES=1, so you can probably just remove
this whole if-then-else block and replace it by that until..
