[webkit-dev] build-related improvements I'm thinking of

Here are a few things I'd like to improve that are build-related:
1) The run-webkit-tests script doesn't work yet for Xcode 2.1
users. Should be easy to fix and I want to do that.
are failing for people other than the Safari team. For us, the
expected and actual results currently match on TOT, but for most
others there are many unexpected successes and many unexpected
failures. Need to fix that.
3) I don't like the way you have to pass the build style into
every script now -- if you want to use Development build style you
have to pass it to every single command, and run-safari has a pretty
weak heuristic where it looks in multiple directories that could lead
to running the wrong Safari binary. I want to put a "default build
style" file inside the product build directory, have a script to set
that, and have all the other scripts obey that unless you explicitly
specify Development or Deployment style. Other details: I want the
script that changes build styles to clean out the build directories
if you are using Xcode 2.0 but not if you are using Xcode 2.1.
4) I want to update the building page <http://
webkit.opendarwin.org/building/build.html> to remove step 1, since
setting the build preference for Xcode is no longer necessary.
I'm posting this to the list today in case someone has other ideas
and wants to stop me or advise me.
I wonder if I should put any of these into Bugzilla.
