I wonder if you built Debug and run-webkit-tests is looking for  
Release DRT, or vice-versa? You could try running `set-webkit- 
configuration [--debug|--release]` and see if that fixes it.

Many of our regression tests rely on having a specific set of Mac  
fonts available (you can see some of the list in WebKitTools/ 
DumpRenderTree/win/DumpRenderTree.cpp). If you don't have the right  
fonts, many of the tests will fail. There are font conversion  
utilities that can convert fonts from the Mac .dfont font format  
to .ttf. You'll need to convert the fonts listed in  
DumpRenderTree.cpp, put them in a directory on your Windows machine,  
and set the WEBKIT_TESTFONTS environment variable to point to that  

This is clearly a less than ideal situation, as many people don't have  
own a Mac OS X installation from which to get the required fonts.  
We're working to improve this situation (Mitz has been making some  
progress in this area), but we're still a ways from having a good
