nightly/latest/mozilla-source.tar.gz changes almost everyday.
Everytime you make package, you should do 'make makesum'.
Is it reasonable?

Roadmap has changed and version rule has changed also.
Next release (maybe late Oct.) will be M18.
But after M18, versions are 0.6(base of Netscape 6.0), 0.9, 0.9.1,
1.0, 1.0.1, ...
See the roadmap bellow

www/mozilla sould be based on stable version X.X.0
www/mozilla-current should be based on version X.X.1

Version rule is clear except M18.
Name of package for M18 should be 'mozilla-M18', but this may break
version rule of NetBSD package system.
But M18 is much faster and implmented more features than M17 and M18
should be improrted...
