Latest Windows Nightly Builds fail with Error Message...Entry Point Not Found

The problem is an unclean build on the build server, not any of the  
users computers.

On the webkit revert, I removed the gnome directory and also libgsf,  
goffice, but obviously this was not enough. Can you run on  
the build server? Thanks.
