It might just work, I will try to test it upfront (the wip pkg has
all the magic needed to use non-released versions).


So there is bit of an issue with the committing of Firefox 10.0.2. Maybe announcing that the gold linker could build xulrunner was interpreted as "this works for DragonFly", but effectively only people running DragonFly 3.1 can build that, and only with a non-standard command. The mention of the gold linker was meant to help narrow the source of the problem and find a good solution.

The bottom line is that we went from a buildable Firefox 8 to a non-buildable Firefox 10 for the majority of DragonFly users, which is an intentional breakage.

Can we resume looking for a satisfactory solution for DragonFly?

Perhaps WRAPPER_REORDER_CMDS could help? Maybe if the -lkvm came in a different place, gnu ld wouldn't "skip" it?
