What, no Mozilla?  :)  I've got to chuckle at the idea of using some of 
these on m68k...xscreensaver alone slows my box to a crawl.

This is definitely appreciated!  We haven't seen binary packages in a 
long time.  Too bad that SCSI issue in 3.0 on mac68k will likely prevent 
anybody from using these.  (Any other m68k people seeing this?) 
Packages for 2.1 would be useful for this reason too.

Is there anything special required to build generic m68k packages as 
opposed to mac68k/amiga/next68k/etc packages?
