We documented what we did for an initial GTK+/Win32 WebKit port in this bug:
This week we landed the Pango font selection patch (originally by Sven
Herzberg of Imendio, completed by Xan Lopez) which lets us use the
native Windows font system rather than depending on FreeType/FontConfig
on that platform.
I'm right now sat next to Tor Lillqvist (of GTK+/Win32 fame, Novell) at
the GTK+ hackfest in Berlin reproducing the work against TOT so we can
get these fixes landed. We're about half way through the build and have
cooked up 4/5 patches so far.
WebKit/GTK+ for Windows doesn't use the proprietary support libraries.
Building is typically done with mingw32, but cygwin should work and it
could be interesting to support MSVC in the future.
I'll post an update to this thread when the changes are in.
