OK. My 10.5 Intel machine is humming away, trying to build TenFourFox using your latest git commits. It’s about 40 minutes into is so far.
There were no issues building all the prerequisites using MacPorts default portfiles, except for the libidl +universal thing I mentioned. Everything installed smoothly.
I looked at the various *.mozcfg files, and I figured you must be using the DEBUG.mozcfg as your basis, so I copied that into ".mozconfig” and that is the one the build is currently using. I didn’t notice any others that seemed more workable. If you’re using a different configuration file, please let me know.
If this finishes building (miracle), I’ll see if it will build on 10.6 using the 10.4u SDK.
