times, and hence does not trigger the error.

I conclude from reading code, that the check for wayland isn't working
anywhere, but I'm not sure I have that right I'd like to hear from
anyone who has gtk3 built with wayland and then builds firefox68.

Can anyone build firefox68 or thunderbird on netbsd-8 (or any other
platform where gcc < 6)?

Absent a fix, I will back out the wayland accomodation in
firefox68/ to restore building of thunderbird and
