WebKit will build, but it needs a good number of patches (that's with 
stlport4, I expect that it's the same or almost with stdcxx). Off the 
top of my head, the patches are

- different types in true and false branches of ternary operator
- use of strnstr (comes from BSD, which means it is present in Mac OS X, 
and has been absorbed by Linux)
- template parameter matching
- mismatches between 'extern "C"' functions and functions without this 
linkage specification
- Sun Studio not being sufficiently broken with the non-standard 
__attribute__ align extension.
