 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.
