The problem is not manpower, it's mozilla itself. I've got a semi complete
milestone 8 package which dies during the build process depending on what
"configure" options I use at different locations due to size changes,
missing references, wrong C++ signatures and other nasty things. Looking
at the FreeBSD port - it sets "USE_NEWGCC" - I get the impression that it
requires the very latest gcc 2.95 to build.
If anyone with more experience in C++ than me wants to take a look you'll
find my unfinished package under this URL:
BTW: make sure that you have about 600MB diskspace available before you
attempt to build this monster.
