Sooner or later you will run into problems using Sun Studio (which is
not pkgsrc's fault, but of ignorant developers upstream). But firefox
built with gcc34 is not able to use the Java plugin, which reduces the
usability of firefox (YMMV). I finally settled on using the binary
version distributed by Mozilla.
