Trying to download and install WebKit, following the instructions at http://webkit.org/building/tools.html

First I downloaded the tar file with sourcecode, but unzipping it
gave errors in my McAffee (up to date0 firewall software.
Then I tried through “svn checkout http://svn.webkit.org/repository/webkit/trunk
WebKit” in Cygwin. it goes for quite a while and then the same error.
Cygwin fails with the following message:
svn: Can't open file 'WebKit/LayoutTests/fast/encoding/.svn/tmp/text-
base/utf-32-big-endian-nobom.xml.svn-base': No such file or directory
In my firewall software, I see this file is removed due to a “
Exploit-ObscuredHtml (Trojan). Following a link in the FW software,
I get this: http://us.mcafee.com/virusInfo/default.asp?id=description&virus_k=131453
So, are there actually Trojan horses within the sourcecode files?!?!
Of is my FW software complaining about nothing and should I just
disable the FW temporarily?
No, there aren't trojans in the source code. But some of our test
files do unusual things on purpose to test behavior in edge cases, and
it sounds like your firewall software is unhappy about that.
