   | Please try this patch for the non-lvalue GCC bug:
 That appears to work just fine.
   | I just committed fixes for the other NetBSD 4.x issues.
 And with that patch, and without the GCC_REQD+=4.4 that I had as the
 alternative method of avoiding the gcc bug, the whole package builds,
 so the oss_ioctl undefined reference that I reported earlier was
 either caused by using the different compiler (huh?) or just vanished
 by itself (or almost by itself, there is a small possibility that
 a cvs update caused some other bl3 file to have altered between the two
 I also did this build in a slightly unusual (for me) way, in order to
 apply the patch without actually installing it in the xulrunner/patches
 directory, but I can't see any reason that would have changed anything
 (the actual difference would mostly have been that this build would have
 had a controlling terminal that worked all the way, whereas I more normally
 do builds in background processes with the output directed to a file rather
 that a tty (pseudo-tty) and stdin from /dev/null).
 I am currently testing www/firefox (that I expect to work) and www/seamonkey
 (that I expect to run into the gcc bug, as the patch is not actually
 installed anywhere, and won't get used for that build).
 Thanks for the help.
