This command will cause the GTK build of WebKit to be executed.  From
this mail thread, I think what you really want is the "build-webkit
--wincairo" option, which builds the non-Apple Windows port.

If you truly are trying to build the GTK version of WebKit (on Windows
or elsewhere), you should probably subscribe to the webkit-gtk mailing
list, and maybe ask for help on the #webkit-gtk IRC channel.

If you want to use the WinCairo port (which is the port I am most
familiar with), please try running the build command using:

$ Tools/Scripts/build-webkit --wincairo

If this fails, please post a build log to this mailing list (or send
it to me directly) and I'll see if I can help out.

I need to reactive the WinCairo build bot, now that the source tree
changes are finished.  This will help us avoid breaks in the future.

I'm attempting to get a current build running, and should have some
confirmation that nothing significant is broken in the next day or so.
