If you don’t care about building WebKit on Windows, you can stop reading now!
Still here? Okay:
I’m attempting to make the Windows build rely less on the Cygwin tool chain.
There are a number of reasons for this, but one of the major benefits I hope to
derive is to reduce the amount of effort required to successfully build WebKit
In service of that goal, I am actually making things slightly more complicated:
you now need to install a Windows build of Perl and Python, You can use
ActiveState’s builds (http://downloads.activestate.com), or the ‘official’
Windows ports of these products.
If you encounter any problems with this “dual Perl/dual Python” situation,
please let me know and I’ll work to resolve whatever difficulty you encounter.
However, based on my testing on our internal build machines I do not anticipate
you will have any trouble.
