No. Both Cygwin and Visual Studio/VC++ Express are required.

You must run update-webkit and build-webkit in order to install various
dependencies that are required to build WebKit. set-webkit-configuration
should not be required.

I think the larger file is a working SVN checkout (i.e., it includes all
the .svn directories), while the smaller one is essentially the output
from "svn export".

I don't think there's an easy way to get just the source code that is
used by a particular port.
