11 I *believe* that it contains everything necessary, however I'm not sure.
12 I added it as a stop-gap measure because I couldn't get Mozilla to work
13 when compiled from source. I was unaware at the time that it had to be
14 run once as root before it could be run as a normal user.

19 Since I'm now using the mozilla (source) ebuilds, I'm not planning to
20 look into the question. If somebody using the mozilla-bin ebuild would
21 like to look into it, feel free.

26 An interesting thing about the mozilla-bin ebuild is that it doesn't
27 require Gtk+ or any of the other supporting libraries, since it includes
28 them. Otherwise I agree with you.
