You didn't say on what flavor. I assume you are doing a release build.
If so, you probably need a x64 OS to link the static library.

You may want to install a few hotpatches from Microsoft,
lists a fews in addition to the ones listed at
http://webkit.org/building/tools.html. This is especially necessary
with the SDK 7 + VS2005 configuration.

Also, you may be interested in the workaround listed at

In short; use /expectedoutputsize:120000000
