Description Milan Crha 2014-10-22 11:36:07 PDT
I'm building WebKit under mingw/msys and when the GTK platform is enabled, together with the WIN platform, then only one of them can be used. Better to prefer the GTK implementation of the "same" functions, to reuse what GTK has. Currently the code expect that either WIN or GTK platform is enabled, which might not be always true.

Milan, sorry for the late review. I'm going to r- this simply because the GTK port does not have any support for Windows anymore. If that situation ever changes (if you or someone else ever gets it working), then of course it would make sense to reconsider this patch.

I don't think this is right; a quick Google search tells me that MinGW supports Clang. Even though clang pretends to be GCC, we don't want COMPILER(GCC) to return true unless the compiler really is GCC.
