Can you check whether JavaScriptCore was correctly built when compiling
outside home dir? I built it outside the home directory (but on a "c"
drive, cygdrive/c/dev/something) and got this kind of error only when
JSCore wasn't correctly built. And that again happened because of a svn
client related line-endings issue. Copying some wtk\* files to the right
locations seems to happen as a post-build action of JSCore - as far as I
understand. When the line endings issue was solved, the build was
successful. Could something similar be the reason in your case?
