[webkit-qt] Corrupt build environment between different ports

Cool - thx. That looks like it worked. Building the Windows port at the moment. 

Couple of questions if you don't mind 
1. So doesn't that mean that I can build one of the two ports locally and not both (unless I go and clear my environment variables all the time)? 
2. Is blowing the WebKitBuild(output directory) enough (in addition to environment tweaks) or there is something else that I need to take care off ?

I appreciate your time.

Suddenly, I started to see an error like " JavaScriptCore\DerivedSources\chartables.c (13) : error C2466: cannot allocate an array of constant size 0". I nuked my WebKitBuild directory but now I can't build either port.

Oops, sorry about the autopilot response. ;)

It sounds like you have the inverse problem then. A QTDIR variable is 
present in your environment which causes build-webkit to believe that 
you want to build the Qt port.

IOW, just unset QTDIR.
