I have never tried building with mingw, but I think at least the  
QuickTime issue is easily avoided using the patch on "http://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=17484 
."  This patch removes the video support, since the Quicktime stuff is  
not redustributable.

Hopefully this will get you past this hurdle and on to the next problem!
