I've built the latest mozilla "milestone" on alpha XL 266 and stock gcc
from stable (2.95.2),
using their nice cvs building system.
It works, albeit not as fast as I'd have liked.
I had to disabe debugging of mozilla, as otherwise building
takes an indecent amount of disk space, that I just don't have.
However, before that
I've built the kde-related stuff that is needed from the source
(these things were newer than those from stable debian).
