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.
