- Update firefox to 1.5
- Add Makefile.common
  o A new build/install system for gecko ports, Makefile.common
    includes many generic routines and common tasks.
  o Fix ld-run-path in all gecko's by using -Wl,-rpath,${moz_libdir}
    thus removing the need to have a startup script for ports that
    depend on gecko. [2]
  o Use system libm, nss, nspr in all gecko ports

- Add
  o This is the predecessor to WITH_MOZILLA=[mozilla|firefox|...]
    with a more robust way of detecting a gecko a end user wishs to
  o abstracts the selection of gecko-based backends. It
    allows users and porters to support any available gecko backend
    without needing to build many conditional tests. ${USE_GECKO} is the
    list of backends that your port can handle, and ${GECKO} is set by to be the chosen backend. Users set ${WITH_GECKO} to the
    list of gecko backends they want on their system.

  Port Makefile example:

  USE_GECKO=firefox mozilla seamonkey thunderbird
  .include <>
  .include "${.CURDIR}/../../www/mozilla/"

  End user example:
  WITH_GECKO=seamonkey firefox

  We highly recommend moving away from using WITH_MOZILLA and switching to

- Repo copy a lot of changes from www/firefox/Makefile. The best part is that
  before it would install in the strange place like this.


  Now it will install in the correct place like firefox:


  Also, get *.pc and idl files install.
- Didn't copy following from www/firefox/Makefile:
        * plugins stuff, because it's known cause the stability problem like
        * EXTRA_SCRIPTS=${PORTNAME}.rb, thunderbird doesn't need it.
- Make portlint happier.
- Add Java 5 plugins support. [1]
- Use system's libm (/usr/src/lib/msun), nss, nspr and etc. Also, do
  not extract those. Better explain, use external dependencies. [1]
- Teach firefox-config and *.pc files for nspr that will making other
  third apps to buildable like epiphany, vlc-devel's mozilla plugins
  and etc. Have been tested with full GNOME 2.11.x build too.
- Add four patches: [1]


                Fix the FreeBSD define

                64-bit wide pthread_t

                Setting a possibly uninitialized variable (value).

- Fix a crash that can occur using gtk+-2.7 and possibly 2.6.10 when closing
  windows. [2]
- Get rid of FIREFOX and FF_VER, best to use PORTNAME and PORTVERSION
  varibles that are arleady exist and lesser complicate.
- Change all hardcore of 'thunderbird' to PORTNAME.
- Change a manual loop for patch all.js to find(1), so we can sleep
  on it.

Note: since 2.1.9 is ABI compatible with 2.1.7, no recompilation is

Update to 0.7.  A list of what's new can be found at

This has the same limitation that Firefox 0.9 had where it needs to be run as
root first. I applied the same hacks to workaround that; however, some users
may need to run thunderbird twice before it starts correctly.
