Hi, Eva,

qmake knows nothing about cygwin path notation ('/cygdrive/d/...') so it cannot 
find the file. This problem may be easily workarounded by passing all the paths 
to qmake in the form of 'd:\...' (requires some modification to webkitdirs.pm 
script). You may use `cygpath` utility to convert paths.
