Ahhh. Poking through the directory structure, I begin to understand. Any part of "standard" Webkit can be replaced in a platform-specific way, if necessary or desired. So there are platform subdirs in just about every section of the hierarchy. How is conditional building for these cases handled, in general, in build/make files?
