This is difficult to investigate without a full build log. It could well be that you happened to pull a revision that was legitimately failing to build.

The good news is that TestWebKitAPI is a test project built after WebKit is built, so perhaps you have everything that you need at this point?

Xcode 12.x is the best version to use when targeting macOS 11 or iOS 14; Xcode 13 is correct for the beta versions of macOS 12 or iOS 15.
