It sounds like you're trying to build the 3.0.0 development sources. Generally speaking, at this point in development, tickets on issues by non-developers are not particularly helpful to us unless accompanied by a patch to fix the problem. That said, you can try to disable the perl plugin (with the --disable-perl configure argument) to see if that helps, as we've changed some compiler flags to "harden" the resulting libraries and binaries and these changes break the perl junk. Keep in mind that 3.0.0devel is not in a state that anyone outside the development team should be using at this point and we don't support users using development code.

Yes, I know that the development version is not stable. But, I'm considering contributing some patches to the community if I could. That's why I'm trying to compile this version.

And, I passed the --disable-perl flag to configure and nothing changed.

  • Resolution set to invalid
  • Status changed from new to closed

It appears you do not have the prerequisite webkit development headers installed.

This tracker is not the place to seek compile help. Please use either the chatroom or mailing list.

It's probably best to hang out in devel@… and report issues such as this one there. :)
