get the debian source package it contains some my first set of necessary
patches to compile mozilla under Linux/parisc. You will probably face
some binutils/gcc/glibc problems, which might even will give you
compile/link problems, but it's a better start than the plain tar.gz


Crap can work. Given enough thrust pigs will fly, but it's not necessary a
good idea.                                 [ Alexander Viro on linux-kernel ]
