I want to have a working version of Firefox instead of using a Netscape 4
which hangs when I try to read Gmail. Is that reasonable enough ? :)

But seriously, have I declared something wrong in the mk.conf or is my 
load path wrong ?

Why won't it compile ? Can you help me please ?

I like the idea behind pkgsrc and would like to use it as the main
software 'Santa Claus'. So if you require any info, please tell me
what it is and I'll gladly share it.

Thank you for your time and patience :)
