------- Comment #17 from mrowe at apple.com  2009-06-22 08:37 PDT -------
(From update of attachment 31638)
This logic should go in webkitdirs.pm, near where we determine whether we need
to add any custom options to xcodebuild in relation to the build product
directory.  That code is also used by the Makefiles, so it would be good to
have the workaround affect both build-webkit and the Makefiles.  I also think
that removing the file silently if it exists is a better option, as we're just
asking the user to do something we can trivially do ourselves.  In addition,
it'd be great if you could update the comment to refer to the Radar number I
mentioned, so that in the future we can quickly determine why the workaround
exists and if it is still needed.  Something like the following should suffice:

   # The presence of ~/Library/Preferences/xcodebuild.plist can prevent
xcodebuild from respecting global settings such as a custom build products
directory (<rdar://problem/5585899>).
