I was misled by your "I hacked Makefile.am" comment, and I still  
don't understand what that means.

In any case, I changed build-webkit to use -configuration with newer  
versions of Xcode a few days back, so this should be fixed by now. If  
it's not working for you, please let me know what's wrong (ideally  
via bugzilla in the Tools component of WebKit).
