In general, you can substitute CFLite for CoreFoundation.  I run this with the WInCairo port of WebKit and have yet to encounter a case where it does not work.  As we have found/patched problems with the official CFLite sources, we have tracked them under http://sourceforge.net/projects/opencflite/.  In keeping with the VS2005 build focus of the WebKit project, the projects in source control are VS2005.  However, I regularly convert them to VS2008 to build for my application releases without problem.

Please note that CoreFoundation is not the only dependency you will need to deal with.  WebKit as built by the core projects require a Windows implementation of CoreGraphics and CFNetwork, neither of which is currently available under a redistributable license.

You can try out the WinCairo port of WebKit, which replaces CoreGraphics with Cairo, CFNetwork with libcurl, and CoreFoundation with CFLite.

Best regards,
