Currently the Windows CE port has no working build system. I'd like to
contribute one, but i need to know the preferred solution:
(1) Add the port to the current sln/vsproj/vsprops files
a) Extend the sln/vsproj with the additional platforms and add many

WebCore.vcproj) for the port (like code.staikos.net)
c) Split the current "main vspoj" files into a
platform dependent and independent file

cross compiling features for wince?
(3) Add a completely independent build system

Because the wince port isn't finished right now, it's only possible to provide
Is already anything in the repository with support for cross compiling
(something like Scripts/build-webkit)?
Is anybody _active_ working on the wince port? Most of the related bugs are
inactive for months now.
Does anybody have the last git repository form git://code.staikos.net/WebKit-
CE before it has gone offline? (my last log message is from 2009-07-30)
I'd like to do some additional work in porting the remaining parts, when i
have a working build system for it.
