One step you didn't mention was setting the WEBKITOUTPUTDIR and  
WEBKITLIBRARIESDIR environment variables prior to opening WebKit.sln  
inside Visual Studio.

The purpose of the script is to remove the need to perform these  
actions manually. With the script, the sequence is:

Run debug-safari
Place breakpoints
Press F5

Nope, you're just duplicating manually the things the script does
