I remember synth required specifically the latest Ada compiler, gcc6-aux.

Part of the attraction is the Ada compiler suite in gcc(5,6)-aux, for the 
possibility of cross-compiling Linux toolchains including gcc with Ada.

Other dependencies would likely be needed sooner or later, anyway.

But I was successful on 11.1-PRERELEASE.

I never ran Chrome or Chromium, might want to try; also Midori and Netsurf (and 
of course, Mozilla Firefox or Seamonkey).

One attraction of Midori is the facility to fudge the useragent string, and 
hopefully thumb my nose on websites that require specific browsers/versions.

I would also like to try John Marino's port of synth to NetBSD, see if that, 
along with pkg, works better than regular pkgsrc tools.
