Thanks very much for your work on the Firefox port. Last night I
built Firefox from the port but ran into errors when I tried to run
/usr/libexec/ld-elf.so.1: Shared object "libpangoxft-1.0.so.399" not found
I updated my ports tree (it was a day or two out of date) and then
built it again this morning, I ran into the same errors when I tried
to run the browser.
I noticed that there was a shared object with larger number
corresponding to the one Firefox was looking for, so I made
the following symlinks:
ln -s /usr/X11R6/lib/libpangoxft-1.0.so.600 /usr/X11R6/lib/libpangoxft-1.0.so.399
ln -s /usr/X11R6/lib/libpangox-1.0.so.600 /usr/X11R6/lib/libpangox-1.0.so.399
ln -s /usr/X11R6/lib/libpango-1.0.so.600 /usr/X11R6/lib/libpango-1.0.so.399
ln -s /usr/local/lib/libatk-1.0.so.800 /usr/local/lib/libatk-1.0.so.600
The browser worked well and was faster than the preview-release
version when I was surfing for about an hour, so maybe my hack worked?
Here is my system info:

Where did the universe come from?
