I tried to build Mozilla 1.6 with the port in /usr/ports/www/mozilla.
This failed with this message:

checking for gmake... /usr/local/bin/gmake
configure: error: GNU Make 3.78 or higher is required to build Mozilla.
===>  Script "configure" failed unexpectedly.
Please report the problem to gnome at [maintainer] and attach the
"/usr/ports/www/mozilla/work/mozilla/config.log" including the output of the
failure of your make command. Also, it might be a good idea to provide an
overview of all packages installed on your system (e.g. an `ls /var/db/pkg`).
*** Error code 1

Looks like a dependency is missing.  I build /usr/ports/devel/gmake
(version 3.80) and then it continued.

BTW: It's not easy to decide which version to build.  Isn't there some
documentation about what the advantages of each version are?  Esp. for
the Linux versions.
