It sounds like some of the autogenerated classes are either (a) not
being regenerated during your build, and therefore have old/missing
contents, or (b) they are not getting copied to the build target
(e.g., WEBKITBUILDDIR) yielding the same problem.

Double check your build logs and see if you might be getting warnings
during the JavaScriptCoreGenerated and WebCoreGenerated build targets.
 You might see warnings coming from the generation of the lookup table
(via gperf), or complaints about being unable to copy files.  Either
of these might cause the errors you describe.
