Actually, I am thinking if I can do it the other way around.

Follow this http://webkit.org/building/debug.html to run WebCore in
Xcode, but in step 4, instead of
using '/Applications/Safari.app.', use

If I do that, i can setup breakpoints inside WebCore, since I am
running WebCore Xcode project (instead of MiniBrowser Xcode project).
