Having some trouble building firefox-0.9.1

Stop in /usr/ports/www/firefox.

>locate libglib

Looks like there is a bad dependency where firefox wants the libglib
from an older version of glib20. I think I had glib-2.3.1 installed when it
was working before.

Some days it's just not worth chewing through the restraints...
