This should not be necessary. MiniBrowser already knows how to look in this location.

This also should not be necessary, nor even helpful. "Additional Library Directories" tells VS where to find .lib files. But Common Files\Apple\Apple Application Support doesn't contain any .lib files. WebKitLibraries\win\lib contains .lib files, but MiniBrowser.vcproj should already know how to look there.

This error message means some earlier project failed to build and left a file called "buildfailed" in your WebKitBuild directory. You can look at the contents of that file to figure out which project failed.

By the way, you shouldn't build the Debug_All configuration. That's only useful for internal builds at Apple. You should use the Debug configuration instead.
