This is a status update ..

I now have the c7-devtoolkit-7 built for all arches (i386, x86_64,
armhfp, aarch64, ppc64le, ppc64, ppc).

I now have the c6-devtoolkit-7 built for all arches (i386. x86_64).

I am in the process of building the latest llvm-toolkit and the
rust-toolkit for CentOS 7 on all arches.  (Both needed for firefox-60 on c7)

I am in the process of figuring out all the changes needed to build the
rust-toolkit for CentOS-6 as there is no released source code with the
proper patches yet .. and it needs to be modified to build with the
python used in EL6.

So, hopefully very soon we will have all the required kits to build
firefox for CentOS-7 .. CentOS-6 may be a bit longer.
