I can unfortunately confirm I see the same lossage with up-to-date
pkgsrc on a 2.0 i386 box.  It looks like some mozilla API changed yet
again, and galeon12 isn't dealing with it.  My current working galeon
(from November 18 last year) is using mozilla-1.7.3nb2 as compared to
mozilla-1.7.5 in up-to-date pkgsrc.

Given that the galeon folks have said they're not maintaining the 1.2
stream any more, it may be time to look for another browser.  I can't
understand how they think that galeon 1.3 is an improvement :-/

Maybe another option is to keep a mozilla173 package around for galeon12
to depend on, but I don't know how maintainable that would be.  Is this
something that pkgviews can help with?
