Well I found out it compiled OK, but there is a problem, it doesn't 
work, when I start thunderbird it complains about not being able to 
initialize browser's security features or something and then it dies 
with segmentation fault

I added a few config options to the Makefile to see if that helps and 
currently my painfully slow Ultra10 is rebuilding thunderbird from 
scratch. If it doesn't work, I'll post the exact errors I get.
