If you open that header or source file, you will find:

 This file was generated by the dom/make_names.pl script.

Thus, find a command that invoke make_names.pl in your build system of
your platform/ports. If you get that one right, that Perl script would
involve WebCore/html/HTMLTagNames.in and

Would be also harmless if you also specify your systems upfront (as I
hinted in https://lists.webkit.org/pipermail/webkit-help/2009-August/000146.html),
so that potentially a more specific answer can be offered.
