Hi All,

I'm trying to compile /usr/ports/www/firefox on FreeBSD-8.1, to no avail. I keep
running into this error:

Has anybody else ran into this? Any way around this?

I thought to myself... "Ok, so let's just disable HTML5" -- no-go, couldn't find
a mozconfig toggle for that.

Any ideas?

/usr/ports/www/firefox35 compiles just fine.
