 I followed the instructions in www.webkit.org to install Webkit framework
on a Win Xp system. Installed developer tools, checked out the code and
built webkit.The build was sucessful with the message "Build: 18 succeeded,
0 failed, 0 up-to-date, 0 skipped"
                But when i run the command
"Webkit/WebkitTools/Scripts/run-safari" it opens up the regular safari
browser without the golden rimmed icon. How can I check if the webkit
framework is indeed built? 

The detailed steps as carried out by me is as follows,

1)Installed Microsoft visual studio 2005 and then installed Microsoft Visual
Studio 2005 Team Suite Service Pack 1 by clicking on the link in
webkit.org(downloaded and installed it)

2)Installed all four hot fixes mentioned in the document.

3)Downloaded and installed cygwin as mentioned in webkit.org using
cygwin-downloader.zip. Selected 
unix line endings during installation.

4)Installed Quick time SDK.

5)Downloaded and installed safari 4 beta version and installed it.

6)checked out the code using "svn checkout
http://svn.webkit.org/repository/webkit/trunk Webkit"
The location of created webkit  folder in C:\cygwin\home\username\Webkit.

7)Downloaded  WebkitSupportLibraries.zip and copied it to
C:\cygwin\home\username\Webkit without unzipping it.

8)Ran the command Webkit/WebkitTools/Scripts/update-webkit from the cygwin

9)Ran the command Webkit/WebkitTools/Scripts/build-webkit from cygwin
prompt.The build was sucessful and gave the message-
Build: 18 succeeded, 0 failed, 0 up-to-date,0 skipped.
Webkit is now built .To run Safari with this newly built code, use the
Note: Webkit has been built with SVG support enabled.Safari will have SVG
viewing capabilities.
Your build supports the following(Optional) SVG features:
*Basic SVG animation
*SVG as image.

Thanks a lot.Really welcome any help in this regard.
