config/Moz directory) is missing, so an attempted build dies almost immediately.
 It seems to be impossible to build using mozilla-source-1.7.2.tar.bz2

cvs up -P inside the mozilla directory, it doesn't seem to work.

looks like NMOZILLA_1_7_2_RELEASE tag didn't include all the files?

I got "No rule to make target `MoreFiles/', needed by

after these issues (all the missing files) have been resolved?

source now. Thanks!
