[webkit-help] WebKit.exe failure

After getting a clean build of WebKit and attempting to run WebKit.exe
the application reports a missing export in objc.dll.
The missing export is objc_initializeClassPair.
I noticed that in the objc project, part of WinCairoRequirments and
fortunately comes with a vsproj file, it doesn't export this method.
Also I noticed that there are TWO such methods: one in
objc-runtime-new.m and one in objc-runtime-old.m. After spending some
time futzing with this, I was able to export the one in objc-runtime-old.m
So I guessing here that the method defined in objc-runtime-old is the
candidate that WebKit.exe is looking for. Once I got passed that
problem WebKit.exe now reports a missing entry for
objc_setAssociatedObject. The problem now is that while there is a
prototype for this method in runtime.h, I cannot find the implementation?!
How can this be? I did a search throughout all the solutions in
WinCairoRequirements and I can't find the implementation. So does
anyone out here know where I can find the implemention of this method or
can post it here or send it to me. I presume I'll also have this same
problem with objc_getAssociatedObject and objc_removeAssociatedObject as
