Trying to download and install WebKit, following the instructions at
http://webkit.org/building/tools.html, but am running into the following:


First I downloaded the tar file with sourcecode, but unzipping it gave
errors in my McAffee (up to date0 firewall software.


Then I tried through "svn checkout
http://svn.webkit.org/repository/webkit/trunk WebKit" in Cygwin. it goes for
quite a while and then the same error.


Cygwin fails with the following message:

A    WebKit/LayoutTests/fast/encoding/noscript-in-head-expected.txt


svn: Can't open file
.xml.svn-base': No such file or directory


In my firewall software, I see this file is removed due to a "
Exploit-ObscuredHtml (Trojan). Following a link in the FW software, I get
this: http://us.mcafee.com/virusInfo/default.asp?id=description


So, are there actually Trojan horses within the sourcecode files?!?! Of is
my FW software complaining about nothing and should I just disable the FW
