Are you sure that is used?
As a test, I did a fresh install of CentOS 5 i386, installed
epel-release and rpmforge-release from
yum groupinstall development-tools development-libs
yum install gcc44 gcc44-c++ python26 yasm-devel
Unpacked the firefox 18.0.1 source code, created the mozconfig file and
ran 'make -f client.mk'
And it built fine ...
