I'm now for a few weeks trying build firefox, mozilla, and thunderbird on
IRIX 5.3. So far progress is amazingly good (read: given the amount of
code there are relatively few issues), but due to the speed (or lack thereof)
my machine it does take at least a while before I have a chance to finish.
The libz issue right now costs me some time rebuilding stuff...
Anyway, do you happen to know of anyone running the mozilla apps on IRIX5?
