Thank you Mark for the reply. I will make sure about using the correct mailing list.

I guess updating xcode to 4.x on Snow Leopard is not supported anymore. Also the document needs to updated as it states xcode 3.1.x or later is required on the developer tools page.

webkit-dev isn't the best place to ask for help with building. I believe that webkit-help takes that role.

That said, it's not too surprising that you're running in to troubles when building with such an old version of Xcode. We typically recommend that people use Xcode 4.2.1 on SnowLeopard for WebKit development.  With older versions of Xcode we'll fall back to using older compilers (GCC 4.2 rather than Clang, for instance) and those older compilers aren't tested by our build bots or most developers.
