Does anyone care to adopt our mozilla package?
If so, please use the usual methods to send us pkgs.
Microsoft: "Where do you want to go today?"
Linux: "Where do you want to be tomorrow?"
BSD: "Are you guys coming, or what?"
I have been trying to get the current mozilla source to build on
NetBSD/i386 with no real luck. It compiles, but drops core trying to
register its components. There may be code-gen bugs or a problem with the
The actual killer appears to be a strlen call in JS_NewStringCopyZ. The
stack is strange enough that makes it hard for gdb to decode it.
If I ever happen upon a solution I'll send it along, but I am not hopeful
for anything in the near future.
There appears to be a FreeBSD port in the Mozilla tinderbox that is often
times green, but I have not tried it, and the Linux version of Netscape 6,
based on the Mozilla source seems to work.
