you'll need to read this:

and, based on the "build" instructions, to adapt them

i have to warn you: building for windows will be
FANTASTICALLY complicated.  last time i tried building
webkit under mingw32 it took me a week... and that was
without the python bindings.

my honest opinion is that you should consider learning
how to use debian GNU/Linux as the amount of time spent
on tracking down and building the dependencies for
webkit on w32/w64 will be so enormous that by comparison
learning an entirely new OS will be a walk in the park.

not kidding, here!  you've been warned :)

I am trying to 'make' the binary files for the pythonwebkit available at git:// a Windows 10 64-bit far I have used 'make' from MinGW and cygwin64...but I am receiving the same error for is the error I receive:

make[1]: Entering directory '/cygdrive/c/Users/Vince/pythonwebkit/Source/JavaScriptCore'
( xcodebuild  `perl -I../../Tools/Scripts -Mwebkitdirs -e 'print XcodeOptionString()'`  | grep -v setenv && exit ${PIPESTATUS[0]} )
/bin/sh: xcodebuild: command not found
make[1]: *** [../../Makefile.shared:5: all] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory '/cygdrive/c/Users/Vince/pythonwebkit/Source/JavaScriptCore'
make: *** [Makefile:4: all] Error 2

So something about it can't find the command "xcodebuild"....I was wondering if these binaries are only for MAC OS??.....I can't figure out how to get my Windows machine to run the "xcodebuild" command.

Sorry for the amature question...but I am a student working on a class project and need these binaries to complete my project....

Any help on this issue is very much appreciated.

Thank you for your time!
