mozilla-firebird dependency on gnomecontrolcenter?

Ok, I did a cvsup of ports-base and the build completed without the
strangeness I saw earlier. Now when I run firebird, nothing happens
(i.e. no browser window, no message stating an error, no core dump,
and nothing logged to dmesg).

Since there aren't any error messages, I'm not sure what info to send
you. The machine is running 4.8-RELEASE with Linux compatibility built
into the kernel. "firebird -v" reports

[92] firebird -v
Mozilla 1.5a, Copyright (c) 2003 <developer build>

Any insights would be appreciated. Tnx!
