Hi, I'm trying to build webkit (cairo build with -debug and -cairo-win32 options) on Windows XP and running into these errors.

------ Build started: Project: JavaScriptCore, Configuration: Debug_CFLite Win32 ------

WebCoreGenerated - 1 error(s), 0 warning(s)

I believe that I've done everything according to the documentation on the web site for building webkit. I've even created a completely brand new Windows XP virtual machine from scratch and installed Visual Studio 2005 along with all the patches, cygwin, svn, QuickTime SDK, Windows 7 SDK, ... Environment variables for WEBKITLIBRARIESDIR and WEBKITOUTPUTDIR are set.

The build I'm grabbing is directly from the subversion source. I've also run update-webkit, update-webkit-auxliary-libs, update-webkit-support-libs

Does anyone have any suggestions as to what I should try next?

Regards --Roland
