Your recommendation seemed to be the safest and easiest so 
I tried it and got the following error as I was not doing any symlinking
and just running from within the directory:

steelhead:/home/andy/mozilla# ./mozilla
./mozilla-bin: error while loading shared libraries: 
libstdc++-libc6.1-1.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or 

Do I need to install a shared library?

Now usually one has to do the ./configure, make, make install routine for
compiling new programs.  Why don't you have to do that with Mozilla?

Thanks for your help.  -Andy
