AFAIK for several webkit-gtk version the "version" in User-Agent: could
stay the same so it isn't strictly related to the webkit-gtk version
used. Probably `pkg-config --modversion webkit2gtk-4.0' is a better
way to check the webkit-gtk version.

Please give a look to the one used on Linux, compare them and if
different try to spoof the user agent on FreeBSD (e.g. via surf `-u'
option) to workaround the warning.
