That does the same thing as running 'set-webkit-configuration --debug'  
followed by 'build-webkit', that is it also unsets NDEBUG which leads  
to assertions and logging code being compiled in.  I think the answer  
to the original question will depend on which port of WebKit (and thus  
which build system: Xcode, Visual Studio, Qmake, Autotools, or  
Bakefile) they are using.

Kind regards,
