I will wait until fc5 (or at least rawhide) releases a good 1.5.0.4
version ... though I could take the tarball from mozilla and manually
change all the language pack extensions.  However, that is a PITA and we
normally wait until there is some kind of release from at least from
Rawhide ... but an FC5 release is better because it is Rawhide with a
little bit of QA.

Once we have that release, we have to modify it to work with CentOS-4
(remove cario and pango ... use mozilla-nss, etc.)

Since we know that 1.5.0.4 is coming soon, that is the one I am waiting
on ... as released by RH in FC5.

Currently, there is no 1.5.0.4 in Rawhide or FC5 ... so RH is still
working on it.  When they release it, we will build it.
