[webkit-dev] Building Chromium port of WebKit on Windows

To make things clear: my only intention for trying to build this port
was due to my patch failed to compile in it. I'm not advocating
towards using it for regular development. Perhaps, I would get the
same compile issue when building Chromium on Windows, but, as I
usually avoid using Windows, and haven't had a ready-to-use
configuration at that moment, I decided to try to build the port, to
make sure that this isn't a bot issue.

Dimitri, I'm currently following building the port using your
instructions for setting up a build bot, and it almost works, thank
you very much! I'll update docs later, after I'll finish with it.
