Hi everyone,

I use www/linux-firefox as my standard browser, as www/firefox doesn't support
flash.

/etc/make.conf has 
WITH_MOZILLA=firefox
WITH_GECKO=firefox


I am trying to install devel/devhelp, and I bumped into these issues:

1) it requires  ${LOCALBASE}/lib/${MOZILLA}/components/libwidget_gtk2.so (and
if not present, it tries to install www/${MOZILLA} ) . linux-firefox doesn't
include libwidget_gtk2.so , but nvu (which I have installed) does. 

I solved this issue by symlinking nvu's libwidget_gtk2.so to the expected
firefox location.

so.. 2) when building devhelp, it sees libwidget_gtk2.so and it moves ahead...
until

Again, gtkmozembed is available from nvu, but not the .pc (no biggie I
suppose)...

anyway, the question is : is hter a way I can have the missing components (so
far, libwidget_gtk2 , gtkmozembed, mozembed, xpcom ) *without* having to
install the native firefox ? 

Would this be possible to do with a new port? (i.e., www/firefox with a special
config to only build these objects... would it be useful ? 

thanks,
