    If you installed a Perl other than the one that comes with Cygwin,  
then you will have a multitude of build errors. Cygwin's Perl uses  
UNIX-style paths, while other Windows flavors of Perl (such as  
ActivePerl) use Windows-style paths. Your best bet is to uninstall  
both Cygwin and Perl and follow the setup instructions on webkit.org  

    You'll also probably have an easier time getting help by showing  
up in our IRC channel, #webkit on chat.freenode.net.
