 FS#87  - firefox doesn’t rebuild

OOM when build gkrust:

patching out debug_level=2 in moz.configure/toolchain.configure

thanks BoidLinux for the hint.

A test is executed testing the generated Gecko rust library (a static library), whether
it contains references to networking functions, this fails on IA32:


$(call py_action,check_binary,–target –networking $@)

Solution is just not to execute this check in config/makefiles/rust.mk

      $(call py_action,check_binary,--target $@)

Trying to comment that out too (the python check).

Now libxul.so misses some libraries, like libmozsandbox.so, liblgpllibs.so, … The libraries exists, but most likely libxul.so cannot find them (rpath ELF fiddling?).

As a workaround I’ll set LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib/firefox in the startup wrapper
scripts /usr/bin/firefox.

Reason for closing:  Fixed
Additional comments about closing:  

fixed for pentium4, dropping all lto and other timing fiddlings as they break when running in the testbed.
