You shouldn't need to make any changes to run the layout tests for the  
Gtk port.  Running "./WebKitTools/Scripts/run-webkit-tests --gtk" is  
sufficient.  As far as I'm aware, I'm the only one that has run the  
layout tests for Gtk.  Many of the tests do not have the required  
platform-specific results so you will get many tests "passing" with  
messages like:

css1/basic/class_as_selector.html -> new (results generated in  

Other tests will fail, and some may crash or hang.  DumpRenderTree for  
Gtk has been fleshed out enough that it makes it around half way  
through the tests before hanging.  I've not investigated the current  
point at which it hangs -- it may be due to a bug in the Gtk port of  
WebKit, or missing functionality in the Gtk version of DumpRenderTree.
