Someone is slated to create that howto. In the meantime, I used the
following info to get Safari+WebKit up and running inside of Xcode's
debugger (do a development build with "build-webkit --development" and
then use the information in this thread):


The key is creating a custom executable in a new project in Xcode that
points to /Applications/Safari.app, and setting the
DYLD_FRAMEWORK_PATH variable. I did it by clicking on my custom
executable, clicking "Info", then going to the "Arguments" tab and
setting it up in the "Variables to be set in the environment" area.

There may be a better way to do it, but this worked for me. Hope that helps.
