Hi Eric,

Have you considered building the mozilla-firebird package from the
mozilla or (more likely) the mozilla-snapshot source package?  Given
that the firebird build system requires just a small modification to the
mozilla build system, I think it's possible to build both
mozilla-browser and mozilla-firebird from the same source.  Doing so
would reduce the large amount of duplicated files that are contained in
both mozilla and firebird.

I intended to look into this last weekend, but cvs.mozilla.org and
cvs-mirror.m.o were unreachable for me for the entire weekend.
