I am new to this list.

I have tried to install webkit on a box with the following characteristics:  
CPU:AMD64 O-S(Linux (CLFS) Kernel GCC 4.3.2.  I downloaded   WebKit  
and WebKit-r41844 (nightly build).  For the latter I 
used   "/WebKitTools/Scripts/build-webkit"  as instructed and at the end I 
obtained fhe following
 WebKit is now built. To run QtLauncher with this newly-built
 code, use the "WebKitTools/Scripts/run-launcher" script.

 NOTE: WebKit has been built with SVG support enabled.
 QtLauncher will have SVG viewing capabilities.
 Your build supports the following (optional) SVG features: 
  * Basic SVG animation.
  * SVG foreign object.
  * SVG fonts.
  * SVG as image.
  * SVG <use> support.

###### However  I then try to compile kdenetwork-4.2.1  and I get the 

-- The following OPTIONAL packages could NOT be located on your system.
-- Consider installing them to enable more features from this software.
+ Decibel: KDE framework for real-time communication <http://decibel.kde.org/>
Used by the Kopete telepathy protocol.
+ WebKitKde: Webkitkde libraries and header files <>
Webkitkde is necessary to compile support for WebKitKde.

The webkit  build above not report where  binaries, libraries  etc are 
installed  (indeed if they are installed).

I then decided to try another route  using gnu make.  However all attempts to 
run sh.autogen.sh' (from both downloads of webkit)  results with the 

checking the target windowing system... x11
checking for Hildon UI extensions... no
./configure: line 18971: syntax error near unexpected token `HILDON,'
./configure: line 18971: `    PKG_CHECK_MODULES(HILDON, hildon-1)'

help: would be  appreciared for:- 

a) where if   the first method has built webkit  and where it is installed  
b) a fix for the HILDON problem   when   the autogern.sh script is run.
