Actually, a special version of Bakefile is needed for <pre-build- 
target> support, as it's not in the official Bakefile sources yet.  
See the "Preparing the Build Environment" section of the <WebKit  
Root>/Bakefiles/Readme.txt file for details on where to obtain the  
version with <pre-build-target> support.
