I pushed a quick & dirty example to [1], which shows a possible 
solution for WTF and JavaScriptCore.

You can test it with the following steps. The helper directory contains 
then all "built" files.

* Create a directory helper
* Copy all files from Source/cmake to helper/cmake
* Copy all files (including the support libraries) from WebKitLibraries 
to helper/WebKitLibraries
* Create an independent directory and run the following commands in it:
$ cmake path/to/WebKit/Source/WTF/wtf -DPORT=WinApple 
$ cmake --build . --target package
* You get a WTF.zip, which should be extracted in the directory helper
* Create an additional independent directory and run the following 
commands in it:
$ cmake path/to/WebKit/Source/JavaScriptCore -DPORT=WinApple 
$ cmake --build . --target package
* Yout get a JavaScriptCore.zip with the DLL

I would be great if someone can verify that this solution will work for 
the internal builds at Apple.
If I get positive feedback I'll can implement this for WebCore and 
WebKit too. Is there someone who will review my patches for this?
Do you think it's possible to directly switch to CMake at Apple instead 
of upstreaming the VS2010 files? IHMO the whole work can be done in a 
few days, if someone at Apple is willing to work with me on it.
