To build the current M4 of web client with M16 of Mozilla under linux please
do the following.
Apply the Makefile.diff patch.
Apply the Patch.diff patch.
Make sure you apply the patches in the root of the mozilla directory.

In the mozilla directory re-run ./configure --with-java-supplement
add $/mozilla/dist/classes to the CLASSPATH

Hope this helps!

Tested the patches submitted by Louis-Philippe and Jason and verified that they
dont break Solaris or Windows builds. Checked in the patches into cvs.

Thanks to Louis-Philippe and Jason, we now have Webclient working on linux. I
will wait for them to check out the checked in patch from cvs, verify that it
still builds/runs fine on Linux and then close this Bug.

Our friends from Macadamian Technologies report that the fix that went into cvs
yesterday, has Webclient working on Linux. Thanks for the help.

Closing this bug.
