The major problem with the .pro files right now is that they rely upon custom 
compilers for generation of numerous files.  These custom compilers were not 
written in a cross-platform way.  I suspect that the incorrect directory 
separators you are encountering are hardcoded into the various custom 
compilers found in WebCore.pro and elsewhere.
