    30 You may have had cygwin already installed before attempting to build WebKit. In this case, you should have checked your cygwin setup to make sure that you have at least the following packages installed: bison, gawk, flex, gperf, perl, zlib (non-exhaustive list, to be completed). The error reports you get when you miss one such package are particularly cryptic and may not lead you to those packages.

     32If you'd rather reconcile each package and version manually, rather than use the cygwin installer, you may find the [wiki:CygwinInstallerPackages list of packages included in the cygwin installer] useful.

    3234== Running the tests ==
    3335After successfully building WebKit, in order to run the tests you need to copy the DLLs from C:\Program Files\Safari\ into your WebKitBuild\bin folder, otherwise testkjs won't run properly. When you are doing this, be careful not to overwrite the WebKit.dll file in WebKitBuild\bin with the one in C:\Program Files\Safari. (If you use the DOS copy command, it will ask you before overwriting.)
