It really looked like the build was stuck in an infinite loop.  Usually an unsuccessful build ends with "Stop."

Being in NetBSD which is not MS-Windows, I guess U_PLATFORM_HAS_WINUWP_API should be 0?

So maybe I can delete or comment out the bad lines if I want to try again (without "make clean", or if I "make clean", then hit Ctrl-Z when I hit the loop,, make the adjustment to uvernum.h and resume?

Maybe best to try shortly before bedtime, if I expect a long build time.

In FreeBSD, webkit was not so monstrously slow to build, or at least didn't get stuck in a loop.

pkg info -a | grep "webkit" shows (no midori here)
