WebKitBuild is a builds and intermediates directory for Xcode, specific to Mac. It’s set up by the WebKit project build scripts for people who don’t have Xcode set to use a particular build directory, because the WebKit projects need to build into a single build directory. I don’t have one of those on my computer because I do have WebKit set to use a single builds and intermediates directory (in my case ~/Build). I don’t know the right answer for what to do about this. We just need a sensible default for people building on Mac. Maybe calling it just Build and leaving it at the top level would be fine.

WebKitLibraries contains libraries and header files needed to build WebKit on Mac and Windows. The name Libraries would be OK for those things; I’m not sure it’s optimal.
