User-Agent: Build Identifier: http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/thunderbird/releases/0.5/thunderbird-0.5-source.tar.bz When I build thunderbird, I got error messages "ISO C++ forbids declaration .... without a type" in nsCharTraits.h:381 I looked there, and template declaration which is in that line doesn't seem to be wrong. I copied it to temporary c++ file, tried to compile and success. But that declaration makes error while built in mozilla context. I made a little investigation and if enclose nsBufferHandle.h with #if 0/#endif, that error disappeares. of course it made lot of other errors, but totally different that "ISO C++ forbids.....". I don't know what in nsBufferHandle.h may be wrong, I even don't know if it's really source of problems.....

I think darin's string changes have landed since thunderbird 0.5. Can you reproduce the build problem with a current trunk tree?
I don't remember correctly, but at least I built it, but not from release tarball, but from CVS with proper tag. I didn't more investigation, but I think that release tarball was/is broken.
