User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Konqueror/3.2; Linux) (KHTML, like Gecko) Build Identifier: When "ac_add_options --without-libIDL" is specified in ~/.mozconfig, the XPCOM build still seems to try to use the library. I'm attempting to build Firefox on a RedHat 7.3 box. I think to have all the of the options set properly in ~/.mozconfig, but I can submit it's contents if necessary. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Setup ~/.mozconfig as outlined at: http://daihard.home.comcast.net/firefox/build.html 2. Modified ~/.mozconfig with: ac_add_options --disable-xft ac_add_options --disable-shared ac_add_options --enable-static ac_add_options --without-libIDL ac_add_options --enable-optimize="-O3" 3. Followed instructions from: http://www.mozilla.org/build/unix.html Actual Results: Build fails at mozilla/xpcom/typelib/xpidl when trying to build xpidl.c with the error: In file included from xpidl.c:42: xpidl.h:53:24: libIDL/IDL.h: No such file or directory Expected Results: Continued building. :-) Relevant (?) package versions: freetype-devel-2.1.4-5.fdr.1.rh73, gtk+-devel-1.2.10-30.fdr.2.rh73, XFree86-devel-4.2.1-13.73.23, glib-devel-1.2.10-5, glib2-2.0.6-1.7, gtk+-1.2.10-30.fdr.2.rh73, kdelibs-3.2.3-6.0.rh73.kde
libIDL is required. xpidl needs it, and xpidl is needed to generate several header files that xpcom needs, much more so that firefox (and mozilla) need.
