Re: firefox fails to build on netbsd-8 amd64

I can't have an opinion about the compilers required, but right now on
-current at least firefox-74.0 fails

make patch:

Just in case I removed all files in www/firefox and
www/firefox/patches and cvs updated to retrieve the current copy.

FYI I've built twice firefox-74.0 on the same machine; second build
was on the same level of pkgsrc and same version of the system, but
prior to the last updates.
