I'm trying without luck to install mozilla-gtk2 1.6nb3 from pkgsrc on
1.6.2.macppc. I found this thread from january which seems related, so I
hope it is OK to revive it.

I seem to be having a similar problem - my pkgsrc is updated from CVS on
nsNativeComponentLoader: SelfRegisterDll(libgfx_gtk.so) Load FAILED with
error: /usr/X11R6/lib/libXp.so.6: Unsupported relocation type 10 in
nsNativeComponentLoader: SelfRegisterDll(libgfxxprint.so) Load FAILED
with error: /usr/X11R6/lib/libXp.so.6: Unsupported relocation type 10 in
I have just tried to remove Xinerama support unconditionally from
www/mozilla/Makefile.common, but this has made no difference.

about this being an error which has been fixed in current xsrc;
unfortunately I seem to be stuck with 1.6.2 for the moment.
Is there a quick fix I can apply, or has a fix made it into 1-6-release,
in which case I might try to build that?
