Has anybody built firefox3 from ports on amd64?
Any particular problems encountered?

I'm having many problems building firefox3 on alpha.
>From what I gather the problems could show up on other
64-bit platforms. At present I'm stuck with

	warning: cast from ... to ... increases
	required alignment of target type

anything of this sort happening on amd64 while building

many thanks
