more or less a case of 'what docs?'

Looks like a lot of questions to me...
What about setting your sources.list into unstable, and then apt-getting
the mozilla-snapshot? I've been using it for a while; I don't think that
I have encountered the problems you had.


I am guessing, but since libjs.a and libjsj.a aren't in the current compiled mozilla tree[there is libjsj.so, but nothing ~close~ to libjs.a], I think he is trying to compile the slink version of mozilla, a snapshot from 10/1998. This is pretty much guaranteed to be a piece of crap no matter how you compile it.
