[webkit-dev] Building on Windows: WebKitSupportLibrary.zip is incomplete

Hi, all,

I'm trying to build WebKit on Windows platform and getting some 
compilation errors like missing header files: pthread.h, unicode/uchar.h 
and others - for example, when building JavaScriptCore sub-project.

When I manually open WebKit solution in VC++ 2005 Express and check 
JavaScriptCode properties, I see the following list of additional 
include directories:


In particular, pthreads.h, unicode/uchar.h, etc. are supposed to be in 
$(WebKitLibrariesDir) subdirs. This directory is generated by the perl 
script from the WebKitSupportLibrary.zip at the very beginning of the 
build process, before VCExpress.exe is launched. The problem is that 
WebKitSupportLibrary.zip archive *does not* contain the header files 
mentioned above.

Is it a known problem with WebKit? Should I download anything else to 
build WebKit on Windows?
