           Summary: configure: Use the wide character version of win32 API
                    by default
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 528+ (Nightly build)
          Platform: Unspecified
        OS/Version: Unspecified
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: WebKit Gtk
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: kalevlember at gmail.com

Some win32 specific code makes the assumption that the build system is turning on the wide character win32 API. For example, PluginDatabaseWin.cpp uses wchar_t* as an argument to PathRemoveFileSpec(). Depending on whether _UNICODE and UNICODE are defined by the build system, it resolves to either PathRemoveFileSpecA(char *) or PathRemoveFileSpecW(wchar_t *). Now, since PluginDatabaseWin.cpp uses wchar_t* there, the A() version of the API can't work and we need to define _UNICODE and UNICODE to make it use the W() variant.

PluginDatabaseWin.cpp:397:50: error: cannot convert 'WCHAR* {aka wchar_t*}' to 'LPSTR {aka char*}' for argument '1' to 'BOOL PathRemoveFileSpecA(LPSTR)'
