Jocelyn has been working on a bigger rework of the build system. See
https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=33542 for details. We plan on landing
The main result of the patch is that the generated files are created in a
separate build step, and only once the files are generated qmake can be called
on WebCore.pro. The main advantage is that we'll finally get proper
dependencies for the generated files, for much more reliable incremental builds
on all platforms.
In practice this won't have any impact on your work if you're using
WebKitTools/Scripts/build-webkit to build WebKit.
If you're modifying an IDL file you'll have to either use build-webkit to build
or re-generate the files using "make generated_files".
If you want to build WebKit without the script, then you hvae to use slightly
different qmake commands.
qmake -r DerivedSources.pro
