I gave it a quick try last night, and got hung up on the python version.
The build wants <= 2.7, and EL5 has something much older than that.

I'd be afraid to just drop a new one in since thatwould probably break
lots of things. Unless I could put it in a private place and just point
the mozilla build to that location. Is that what you did?
