           Summary: Windows doesn't build if windows (ActiveState) perl is
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 420+ (nightly)
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows XP
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: WebCore Misc.
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at opendarwin.org
        ReportedBy: kkowalczyk at gmail.com

Windows build depends on using cygwin's version of perl for running *.pl

However, installing Windows (ActiveState) version of perl associates *.pl files
with ActiveState version so some of the scripts fail to execute because they're
being run with ActiveState perl version which doesn't understand Unix paths.

The fix is to change WebCore/DerivedSources.make to explicitly run perl on *.pl
files instead of relying on Windows shell figuring out which program to run for
this extention.

This shouldn't break other platforms like linux or mac.

Patch attached.
