run-webkit-tests essentially just drives DumpRenderTree, which is
an application that runs each individual test. So far, I believe
DumpRenderTree is only available for the Mac and Qt platforms. If you
are building WebKit on Qt, you should be able to use run-webkit-tests
without problems (we have a bot that does this regularly at http://
build.webkit.org/). If you are trying to run the WebKit tests on some
other platform (e.g., Gdk), you'll need to port DumpRenderTree first.
The source for DumpRenderTree is in WebKitTools/DumpRenderTree, which
you can see here http://trac.webkit.org/projects/webkit/browser/trunk/
