Thanks Artem,
that was the problem!  I launch the build from windows shell and it 
builds! :)

now I want to test it, launching run-safari, but it doesnt work :( .  
Debugging the script I see that it is trying to launch a safari.exe command.
But I have no safari.exe command in all my system. ¿Have I missed 
something?  Perphaps I have to install safari in order to debug.. I do 
not know..

Thanks in advance,
