When WebKit (and JavaScriptCore) builds, it expects to have access to
a set of build dependencies located in %WEBKITLIBRARIES%. The
"include" subfolder here should have a copy of stdbool.h and stdint.h.
 You should not have to modify the sources to include any additional
paths.  I'm actually not sure where the os-win32 stuff comes from.
Maybe Qt or the WinCE port?

Again, the %WEBKITLIBRARIES% location should have include and lib
folders with the appropriate CoreFoundation or CFLite analog.

When you run "update-webkit" it downloads and installs the necessary
headers and link libraries for CoreFoundation.
When you run "update-webkit --wincairo" it downloads and installs the
necessary headers and link libraries for CFLite.

The files that arrive from the "update-webkit" or "update-webkit
--wincairo" operations are built with VS2005.  If you want to build
with VS2008 and only have dependencies on one VS runtime, you will
need to build your own set and drop them in the %WEBKITLIBRARIES%
location.  This is what I do when building for my application at work.
 I have the entire build tree for Cairo, CFLite, SSL, etc., at
https://github.com/bfulgham/WinCairoRequirements along with solutions
for VS2005, VS2008, and VS2010.
