I think this is the source of your problem.  Is there a complaint in
any of the preceding lines about "autoversion.h"?  This file often
gets screwed up by Windows CR/LF, causing the resource compiler to

These PRJ0002 errors are annoying.  I believe they just mean that the
dependencies are not built (i.e., QTMovieWin depends on
WebCoreGenerated, which depends on JavaScriptCore building
successfully).  So I would ignore any PRJ0002 errors for now.

Nicholas!  That's why the documentation on
http://webkit.org/building/tools.html says to install the "Service
Pack 1 to Visual Studio 2005" (which Windows Update did for you), and
if you are running on Vista to install the "Service Pack 1 Update for
Windows Vista" (which Windows Update probably installed as well).


But it sounds like you are making good progress!

Can you forward the full build log for JavaScriptCore?
