[webkit-dev] Safari won't run for me.

I followed the instructions at http://webkit.org on how to sync, build
and run WebKit. However, the last step (run-safari) fails due to
inability to find the CLSID for WebKit.WebView. It appears that some
kind of COM object installation needs to be done in order for this to
succeed. But I can find no instructions that deal with this, nor did a
search of the WebKit site and Bugzilla find an answer, nor do the
scripts appear to automatically do it, nor could I find an auxiliary
script to do it. Below shows what I execute and what goes wrong. Thanks
for any help you might be able to give.
$ /cygdrive/d/WebKit/WebKitTools/Scripts/build-webkit --debug
WebKit is now built. To run Safari with this newly-built
code, use the "WebKitTools/Scripts/run-safari" script.

Your build supports the following (optional) SVG features:
* Basic SVG animation.
