Current svn gdk build works. Here's a script I use to do a full build:
kjk at kjkubu:~/src/webkit-tot$ more ./gdk-rebuild.sh
kjk at kjkubu:~/src/webkit-tot$ cd WebKitTools/GdkLauncher/
kjk at kjkubu:~/src/webkit-tot/WebKitTools/GdkLauncher$ source ENV
kjk at kjkubu:~/src/webkit-tot/WebKitTools/GdkLauncher$ ./gdklauncher
If you get a lots of compile errors, that probably means missing
dependencies. Check that you have icu-dev installed.
You have to have the latest Ubuntu 6.10 since that's the only one that
has the required cairo version.
