Please anyone help me know, if we have any workaround for executing web kit
test suite on linux.

i made the default platform as gtk (in run-webkit-tests script) and on
execution it gives the error as:
can't exec "flex": no such file or directory at
/root/webkit/html/webkittools/scripts/webkitdirs.pm line 557.
can't exec "bison": no such file or directory at
/root/webkit/html/webkittools/scripts/webkitdirs.pm line 557.
can't exec "gperf": no such file or directory at
/root/webkit/html/webkittools/scripts/webkitdirs.pm line 557.
ERROR: flex, bison, gpref missing but required to build webkit.
compiling dumprender tree failed!

though the same file webkitdirs.pm exists in the same directory.
the webkit revision is 27114, though upgrading the version will help but i
am looking for a quick workaround for the same version.

Thanks in advance
