Hi AmitM,

A week or so ago I posted a patch on
http://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=12327 that should allow WebKit r18972
to build again.  No reviewers have been very interested in taking a look,
however, so it's just sitting and rotting.  I imagine the patch would need
updating to work with the current trunk.

If you're interested, you could try syncing to r18972, ensuring things
build, then updating to trunk, fixing the compile again and posting an
updated patch on that bug.  I don't really have time to do that myself.

I should warn you that even if you get things compiling, there will be major
functionality problems.  A lot of stuff in the Windows port is stubbed out,
and the COM layer is basically completely broken, so Spinneret (the test
shell) will deref garbage when you try to actually navigate to a page.
