The builds from nightly.webkit.org only contain binaries. They don't contain header files.

WebKit2.h is here: Source/WebKit2/UIProcess/API/C/WebKit2.h

But header files in our source tree are not laid out the way MiniBrowser expects for building. One of the steps in the WebKit2 build involves copying the public API headers to a location where MiniBrowser.vcproj expects them. So you won't be able to build directly against the headers in the source tree without first building WebKit2.
