Did you install required libraries as described on this page:
http://trac.webkit.org/wiki/BuildingCairoOnWindows ?

I recall there were problems while building cairo port for the first
time.  You might need to convert all CRLFs to LFs in *.sh and *.in files
throughout the source tree.  Use this command to do so and see if that

find . \( -name \*.sh -o -name \*.in \) -print0 | xargs -0 sed -i.bak -e
