1 Looking at the ebuild, one gets the impression that setting this USE
2 flag should result in linking with (at least) the system libjpeg, zlib,
3 libbz2, libpng, sqlite, and cairo. Which should be at least a little
4 bit more secure, from my POV, than having all that code embedded and not
5 necessarily getting updated for CVEs in those libraries.
7 But a trivial ldd check after installation shows that no such thing
8 actually happens. WTH??
10 Do I really have to dive into Mozilla build system? :-(
