Hi Everyone,


I'm new to WebKit, having been given the project of investigating it's
use in an upcoming project. I'm having problems getting the source and
building it. I'm attempting to build on a Windows platform. I have all
the tools specified on webkit.org. I was finally able to checkout all
the source, but the site says an update should be done. When I perform
the update-webkit command, it fails. There's a long error message like
"Can't locate HTTP/Date.pm in &INC (&INC contains: ......) And then I
get "Died at WebKit/WebKitTools/Scripts/update-webkit line 71.

Note, the reason I did the update was because I tried to do the
build-webkit after I got the source but it fails. Basically, qmake is
not found in the /usr/bin cygnwin path, but in /usr/lib/qt3/bin. After
fixing the path, qmake still dies because it gets passed a "-r" option
which it complains as being an invalid option. I then thought maybe the
update would help.


Does anyone have any thoughts?
