	Oh, I believe it. Red-Hat compiles of mozilla run fine though.
After installing, run once as root, and it will run for user accounts.

	I've also been trying to compile mozilla with g++-3.0 and -O3 and
5 DAYS later it is still compiling. Numerous problems exist, like mangled
function names are different (fixed that by editing the genstubs.pl) and
problems linking with the accessibility functions (fixed that by just
making them return an error).

	On installing the deb package, registering components gives a
segfault on my box. It's been doing that for months, and I strongly
believe it's the compiler's fault.

	Lots of luck...
