You can always use CFLite (available externally from Apple as 'opencflite' (http://sourceforge.net/projects/opencflite/).

It builds on Linux, Windows, and Mac OS X.  I've found it very useful for tracking the full Apple WebKit port, as it means there is much less code to duplicate and maintain.  I can just let the kind folks at Apple do all the heavy lifting :-)
