I'm trying to setup a new instance of WinCairo with latest on my windows machine (I did it before successfully about 6 months ago).

I'm following the steps outlined on  http://www.webkit.org/building/checkout.html, for windows.  I've successfully done steps 1-3,  (run Cygwin, download nightly snapshot, download "WebKit Support Libraries),  the problem comes in at step 4:  "Run the ./Tools/Scripts/update-webkit script<http://www.webkit.org/coding/scripts.html> to update your source tree.  If you downloaded the tarball, this will bring it up to date. Windows users must always execute this command after first obtaining the code, since it will download additional libraries that are needed to build."

It produces the error:
$ ./update-webkit

You may not be connected to the internet. Attempting to build without updating.
Mathematical fonts, such as STIX and MathJax, are needed to
use the MathML feature.  You do not appear to have these fonts
on your system.

You can download a suitable set of fonts from the following URL:
Installed tools are correct for the WebKit build.
Setting the Environment Variable 'MSBUILDDISABLENODEREUSE' to '1'

SUCCESS: Specified value was saved.

-If I copy the url from the command and paste it in my browser the file does download successfully.
-A colleague of mine attempted the same steps and got the same issue.
-Using http instead of https appears to have made no change.
-Other similar scripts like ./update-webkit-wincairo-libs behaves in a similar way.

What are the reasons the scripts might detect me as "may not be connected to the internet"?
