Comment (by kencu):

 That binary you downloaded from SourceForge already has all the libgcc
 parts and all the supporting libraries in it, so it is already self-
 contained and you don't need MacPorts or anything else to use it. So that
 part is done already.

 I will (am) make a new TenFourFox FPR 18, 19, or 20 binary that is up-to-
 date, and I'll put it up on that sourceforge site for anyone to use.

 If you are interested (and it seems like you are) then we could sure use
 some help keeping these things up-to-date...feel free to reach out. The
 GitHub repo that contains our TenFourFox Intel changes is held by Riccardo
 -- and most of the changes are upstreamed to Cameron, unless they are too
 wild for his main TFF repo. I'll let you know when I have a newer TFF
 Intel done.

 One problem we have is that MacPorts has updated libgcc to a version that
 breaks on all older systems. So to make things work, we have to hold back
 the libgcc version to 7.4.0 (or go through nutty lengths to set the
 default library path in every piece of software that uses libgcc, which
 does not fit in with Cameron's current plans). So I have held back to
 libgcc 7.4.0 on all my systems (although MacPorts has decided to give the
 library_path idea a shot).
