Default Building Mozilla Firefox 3 Beta 5 on FreeBSD [solved]

Originally posted on FreeBSDForums. I'm just posting my original post and pertinent replies so that people can look this up from search

I followed all the instructions at http://developer.mozilla.org/en/docs..._Documentation. However, my build fails with:

Code:
/usr/home/vivin/mozilla/js/src/jsgc.c:189: warning: type of bit-field `prevUntracedPage' is a GCC extension

Has anyone tried to get the Firefox 3 Betas running under FreeBSD? I remember that they used to have FreeBSD binaries before, but all they have now are Windows, Linux, Solaris, and OSX.

Somebody helped me out by posting out these useful links from the internets. Basically you upgrade ALL your ports, munge the tree with the script they have provided, and then build 3b5 from ports:

I don't think this kind of "copying" was what the administrators here approve of, copying your own posts is not "frowned upon", but copying someone else's is risky business.

Can we assume you asked for their permission? They might have been convinced to follow suite.
