Hi Liu,

many thanks for your answer,

finally I have found where the problem is.
After starting on the script build-webkit, the file WebKitBuild/
Release/WebCore/Makefile will be created.
Problem is, that in this file is missing directory generated/release
in INCLUDE variable (-Igenerated/release) and therefore no generated
file can be used within code.

I don't know, why the INCLUDE isn't created correctly

Are you sure you have installed the required tools: gperf, bison, 
and flex .

If not, install them and compile again.

Otherwise, try run make-generated-sources.sh.

I am trying to build the Qt port of WebKit on Ubuntu 8.04
I have used the instructions on http://trac.webkit.org/wiki/

Unfortunately the compilation always results with error:

../../../JavaScriptCore/pcre/pcre_tables.cpp:72:24: error: 
chartables.c: No such file or directory
make[1]: *** [obj/release/pcre_tables.o] Error 1

After starting the script WebKitTools/Scripts/build-webkit I always 
got the following:

/usr/local/Qt-4.5.3/bin/rcc: File does not exist '../../../WebCore/
/usr/local/Qt-4.5.3/bin/rcc: File does not exist '../../../WebCore/

so I am not sure if this can be the reason, why the compilation 

Does anyone know where could be the problem?
Many thanks,
