 As with the betas for 59,
 [https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/59.0/] does not provide a
 direct clickable link for the source. The SOURCE file is just text of
 links, for .tar.bz2 the link is [https://hg.mozilla.org/releases/mozilla-
 release/archive/c61f5f5ead48c78a80c80db5c489bdc7cfaf8175.tar.bz2] which as
 you might expect downloads c61f5(etc).tar.bz2 which has a directory name
 of

 mozilla-release-c61f5f5ead48c78a80c80db5c489bdc7cfaf8175/

 For the book, this looks like it is going to be messy.  I suppose we can
 use wget to insert the mozilla-release- onto the tarball name, or perhaps
 change it to firefox-59.0.tar.bz2 - but it will need a note of the
 directory name and wget will need to be added as a dependency.

 This is the same file as was used for (candidate) build5, which is what
 I'm using at the moment.  It no longer builds with system cairo (some of
 the code disagrees about the parameters used for at least one function).
