Stop. make: Leaving directory `/usr/src/mozilla/other-licenses/libart_lgpl' Expected Results: build continued. I tried manually pulling libart from HEAD, but make -f client.mk checkout then just wiped it out again with lots of lines like: cvs server: mozilla/other-licenses/libart_lgpl/art_alphagamma.c is no longer in the repository
Looks like we didn't tag the libart_lgpl stuff with the branch tag... not sure whether we should have; timeless had some thoughts on the matter.
So, what should we do to compile Mozilla 1.5 with SVG support?
I managed a build by pulling libart from 'HEAD' - no idea if it works yet though. cvs co -r HEAD mozilla/other-licenses/libart_lgpl Hardly elegant...
Same problem when trying to build mozilla 1.6b
According to timeless the concern is that people who check out on tags won't realize that they're checking out and building code under other licenses since we normally force people to set an environment variable to get other licensed code. One possible course of action would be to provide a LIBART_CO_TAG, but he doesn't have the time right now.

Statistically, we have found that bug reports that have not been confirmed by a second user after three months are highly unlikely to be the source of a fix to the code. While your input is very important to us, our resources are limited and so we are asking for your help in focussing our efforts. If you can still reproduce this problem in the latest version of the product (see below for how to obtain a copy) or, for feature requests, if it's not present in the latest version and you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug (given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more reproduction information if you have it. If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not changed in any way in the next two weeks, it will be automatically resolved. Thank you for your help in this matter.

Marking wontfix. We have no plans to continue development of the libart backend.
