Speaking as a person who has built Firefox on my own before, the only hard
part about building Mozilla is the balancing act between the required
versions of gecko-sdk and cairo. Overall, I've had zero problems building it
once I sorted out the exact releases it wants (this is why when on a newer
distribution, I normally have two versions of cairo, gecko-sdk, and pango;
the one the distro ships, and the one that older apps need).
