[webkit-dev] WebKit Fails to build in XCode 3.1

Hi Mark,

Thanks again for the hint...

I have been monitoring the Latest Build Status page at http://build.webkit.org/one_box_per_builder 
   and it appears that there hasn't been a successful build for a  
while, at least the status shows that the last 8 build attempts  
failed.  The Status page shows that the last successful build was on  
trunk 27090.  I would have greater confidence that the WebKit source  
would build successfully on my machine if WebKit Org were able to  
build a successful target themselves.  Hence, I will make another  
attempt to build locally when the Build Status shows that a successful  
build has been achieved by WebKit Org.

Also I'm using the Command Line to build my local target.  I have  
examined the log that was produced by the Terminal when I attempted a  
local build and I couldn't find anything that would indicate that an  
error occurred during the build process apart from the comments that I  
sent you below.

Once again, thanks for helping me out :-)

Best regards,
