As Adam Roben mentioned recently in another recent reply:

"The instructions at <http://webkit.org/building/tools.html> should  
result in an error-free build (unless the build is broken at the time  
you checked out your source tree, but then an 'svn up' will fix that).  
Are there specific issues you ran into that you could file bugs about  
at <https://bugs.webkit.org/>? We'd like the build process to be as 
simple and smooth as possible. Thanks."
