dear Sir/Madam

I have installed Cygwin, downloaded webkit, installed qt-3, then I start to compile WebKit:

: WebKit/WebKitTools/Scripts/build-webkit

get error:

Calling 'qmake -r OUTPUT_DIR=/home/Administrator/WebKit/WebKitBuild/Release /hom
e/Administrator/WebKit/WebKit.pro CONFIG+=release CONFIG-=debug' in /home/Admini

***Unknown option -r
Usage: qmake [mode] [options] [files]

   QMake has two modes, one mode for generating project files based on
some heuristics, and the other for generating makefiles. Normally you
shouldn't need to specify a mode, as makefile generation is the default
mode for qmake, but you may use this to test qmake on an existing project

        -project       Put qmake into project file generation mode
                       In this mode qmake interprets files as files to
                       be built,
                       defaults to *.c; *.ui; *.y; *.l; *.ts; *.h; *.hpp; *.hh;
*.H; *.hxx; *.cpp; *.cc; *.cxx; *.C
        -makefile      Put qmake into makefile generation mode (default)
                       In this mode qmake interprets files as project files to
                       be processed, if skipped qmake will try to find a project

                       file in your current working directory

Warnings Options:
        -Wnone         Turn off all warnings

        -Wparser       Turn on parser warnings
        -Wlogic        Turn on logic warnings

         * You can place any variable assignment in options and it will be     *

         * processed as if it was in [files]. These assignments will be parsed *

         * before [files].                                                     *

        -o file        Write output to file

        -macx          Run in Mac OS X mode
        -d             Increase debug level

        -help          This help
        -v             Version information
        -after         All variable assignments after this will be
                       parsed after [files]
        -cache file    Use file as cache           [makefile mode only]
        -spec spec     Use spec as QMAKESPEC       [makefile mode only]
