Just as another data point, I did get Mozilla 0.7 to build and run (a
bit shakily) compiling under RH 7.0 with their stock GCC 2.96 (please,
no flames... :-).

However, Galeon did not build, or rather, did not link, because of
some unresolved references, though I think that was a matter of a
version skew (it wasn't initially clear to me if the Galeon version
was supposed to work with the Mozilla version)...
