Today we use an explicit .exp file for JavaScriptCore and WebCore on Mac and I believe a .def file in the Apple Windows WebKit port. So there might be a necessary first step of moving to a different export approach. And I know someone has been working on that.

I probably can't devote a lot of time to it for the next week or two, but I'd like to see this fixed regardless of if it's used to move forward the WTF split, obviously, so I can put a higher priority on it if I know there are reviewers waiting to land things. :)

If WTF is to be a static library, there's no need to change anything in the .def file on Windows.
.def files apply only to DLLs.

FWIW, WTF is already a static library in Apple's Windows port, just self-contained inside the JavaScriptCore project. See: http://trac.webkit.org/browser/trunk/Source/JavaScriptCore/JavaScriptCore.vcproj/WTF/WTF.vcproj
