Mozilla 1.5 errors [resolved?]

I reported some problems with building Mozilla [1.5] from ports, 
specifically this one:

In file included from cppsetup.c:28:
def.h:29: X11/Xos.h: No such file or directory
def.h:30: X11/Xfuncproto.h: No such file or directory
gmake[2]: *** [host_cppsetup.o] Error 1
gmake[2]: Leaving directory 
gmake[1]: *** [export] Error 2
gmake[1]: Leaving directory 
gmake: *** [default] Error 2
*** Error code 2

I ended up tracking down what port owned Xos.h 
[XFree86-4-libraries] and rebuilding/installing it. At that point, 
Mozilla would build and install just fine.

However, it wouldn't run: it need and I have installed. The simple workaround was to symlink the 
needed file from the one I had and that seems to be working.* is installed by gettext. I have no idea what the Real 
Solution for this is, but I leave these workaround steps in the 
archive in case anyone finds them useful .
