[webkit-dev] Status of Linux port?

Thanks. After installing that version of bakefile I was able to
generate Unix makefiles. I've actually read the Bakefiles\Readme.txt
but ignored the bit about installing newer version of bakefile,
thinking that if all it adds is MSVC support, then I don't need it on
Unix. I guess it has more changes than that.

With that JavaScriptCore builds partially (chokes on kjs/reference.cpp
=> obj-gnu/jscore_reference.o) and gdk port chokes on the first file
(WebCore/CharsetData.cpp => obj-gnu/webcore_gdk_CharsetData.o). But at
least I'm in a place where I can track down the source of those
problems. Since it seems there are known build problems, I'll wait for
Mike's changes and take it from there.

I've started a wiki page about linux port
(http://wiki.opendarwin.org/index.php/WebKit:Building_On_Linux) where
I plan to document the process.
