The DLLs aren't really a big deal, a bit ugly, but window installs are
usually that way. It's just that the ic* DLLs (all for unicode) are
around 15M (!!!) easily the biggest part of my engine.
It'd be nice to have a compiler flag where I could remove the need for
unicode. I know there is one for unicode sorting, but without being
able to compile the code myself I can test how well this changes things,
which is why right now I'm learning my way through the code so I can
better understand this and compile everything myself.
Also not sure why pthread is needed, as I'd assume all threading was
within WebKit itself.
