As Paul pointed out, you are missing libraries needed to build.  Did
you read the instructions on
"http://webkit.org/building/checkout.html" for getting the sources?
If you ran the "update-webkit" script from Cygwin, it should have
downloaded the various DLL's needed to build.

Make sure that the WebKitTools/Scripts directory is in your path, and
that you are using the "build-webkit" and other commands.  These set
up the paths needed to build properly.

Please read "http://trac.webkit.org/wiki/BuildingOnWindows" as well,
to see if you forgot to set any environment variables.

Good luck!
