Tests that require PHP will fail under NRWT on a new Cygwin install for Apple's Windows port. This is because NRWT doesn't know how to install libphp4.dll like httpd.pm does.
okay, with a built and (mostly sort of) working apple win machine, I've copied the file to /usr/lib/apache/libphp4.dll with the following permissions:
-rwxr-xr-x 1 dpranke Domain Users 3363586 Jul 11 16:35 libphp4.dll*
and yet run-webkit-httpd fails with :
Starting httpd on <http://127.0.0.1:8000/>...
Press Ctrl+C to stop it.
Syntax error on line 237 of /cygdrive/c/src/wksvn/LayoutTests/http/conf//cygwin-httpd.conf:
Cannot load /usr/lib/apache/libphp4.dll into server: No such file or directory
I just ran into this same error, but I was attempting to use the old dump render tree. I noticed that libphp4.dll will be copied automatically by run-webkit-tests from LayoutTests/http/conf to /usr/lib/apache/libphp4.dll, but even after this is done it doesn't run.
I ran depends.exe against libphp4.dll. There is one library that is missing: minires.
Apparently minires is now obsolete: http://cygwin.com/cgi-bin2/package-cat.cgi?file=minires%2Fminires-1.02-1&grep=cygminires.dll
If I run the cygwin installer (cygwin-setup), and uncheck 'hide obsolete packages' I can install minires, and run http tests requiring php successfully.
In an attempt to see if I could remove this dependency, I tried building php4 from source using archived source tarballs. I can't get php4 to build in cygwin...
Anyway, I think the solution to this problem may be installing minires automatically. (thought it is bothering that it's considered obsolete).

I was also running into same problem when running http tests with old run webkit tests on Windows.
Here's a patch that simply adds the minires package to the list of required packages in the cygwin downloader.
Although the executable file download (http://www.webkit.org/building/tools.html) will need to be updated.
Roger says that he's tested to make sure that cygwin still grabs minires despite it being obsolete.
