[webkit-dev] Help with GTK build

Hi GTK folks,

As we've been discussing, I moved WebCore this evening.  The GTK bot
has a mysterious build error that I'm hoping you can help me with:

make  all-am
make[1]: Entering directory
/bin/mkdir -p ./.deps/DerivedSources
make[1]: execvp: /bin/bash: Argument list too long
make[1]: *** [libwebkitgtk-1.0.la] Error 127
make[1]: Leaving directory
make: *** [all] Error 2


I take this to mean that adding "Source" to a bunch of the path names
caused some build command to exceed the allowable length of a command
line argument?  What's the best way to fix this issue?

Thanks for you patience,
