Yes for both thunderbird and firefox, ever since they started 
adding /usr/pkg/lib to the LD_LIBRARY_PATH they set 
in /usr/pkg/bin/{thunderbird,firefox}.  I've been hacking that entry 
out post install on NetBSD with no ill effect.

It was added to fix an issue on Solaris - see rev 1.22 of 
Makefile-thunderbird.common and rev 1.2 of firefox/INSTALL.  The odd 
thing is I thought I'd tried conditionally not adding it for NetBSD 
but it had still ended up in the script and I hadn't tracked down 
why - hence no patch from me.
