System: NetBSD dawn.local 2.0F NetBSD 2.0F (DAWN) #0: Wed Jun 2 16:21:40 CEST 2004 jmmv@dawn.local:/home/build/obj/usr/src/sys/arch/i386/compile/DAWN i386

        I went to install firefox-bin, having MOZILLA_USE_LINUX=yes in my
        mk.conf.  The package ended up depending on the native gtk, which is
        wrong.  So I removed the dependency and installed without native gtk,
        and firefox works perfectly fine.

        This also affects mozilla-bin, as the "problem" is located in
        mozilla-bin's Makefile.common file.
        Install firefox-bin in a NetBSD box, having MOZILLA_USE_LINUX=yes in
        mk.conf and note how it builds and installs the native gtk.
        This looks like an incorrect conditional in mozilla-bin/Makefile.common
        so should be trivial to fix for someone familiar with these packages.
