The packages are there but I was getting version conflicts.  Something
about one of the packages requiring (<< 3.0.2); I'll check it for sure
when I get t work tomorrow.

I attempted to build from source but got segfaults when it was building
libstdc++ via xgcc (something like that).

I have not been having good success building mozilla.  I'm also
attempting to try Intel's compilers which have some necessary ia32
executables for some reason (checking w/ intel on this).

But in general I heartily agree with recompiling.
