[webkit-dev] Has anybody ported WebKit to a platform other than Windows or Unix?

I'm wondering if anybody has successfully ported WebKit to a platform 
other than Windows or Unix. I ask because I am looking into this 
possibility myself. I've looked at Mozilla and WebKit and at first 
leaned towards WebKit, as it seems to be easier to grok. But in looking 
at the WebKit source it seems that there are hundreds of 
platform-specific files and a bit of the source apparently isn't 
available at all (e.g. some stuff from WebKit Support Libraries). Thus I 
am becoming more pessimistic about WebKit than when I started. Mozilla's 
source appears to be more portable and platform independent.

However, perhaps I am missing something and am not seeing the entire 
picture. If somebody has some experience working with WebKit on a 
platform other than Windows or Unix, perhaps you can enlighten me about 
the realities here.
