If you're talking about GDK build, then maybe you have unclean build.

Until recently Gdk build used rtti and exceptions. I've made changes
to bakefiles to turn off rtti and exceptions
(http://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=11226) and at the time things

If you synced those changes and e.g. regenerated makefiles for
everything except gdklauncher, when linking you will get an error
complaining about missing typeinfo (because webcore has no rtti but
gdklauncher wants it) which might be mis-interpreted as requiring

If you regenerate makefiles for everything, things should work. I know
because when I was working on that change, I forgot to regenerate
makefile for gdklauncher and got this error.

Which indicates that Scripts\regenerate-makefiles should be fixed to
regenerate all makefiles (currently it doesn't regenerate gdklauncher

Or it might be something entirely different...
