[webkit-help] new to building on NetBSD

Hi! I'm new to Webkit. I am using NetBSD as my development platform. What I'm trying to do, which I thought would be fairly simple, is just build Webkit as a shared library, so that I can experiment with all the different front-ends using the same engine. I have updated all scripts to have the correct path to perl on my system.

When I run the build-webkit script, it finishes in 0:00 and doesn't seem to do a thing. Stepping through the script in the debugger, it appears that I have to specify a port.  The building/build.html page does not make this clear at all. Maybe build-webkit could throw a message if none of the port options are supplied.

Having it set this way makes me question whether what I am trying to do is even possible, however. Forcing selection of a specific port seems to discourage it.
