If you intend to build regularily, we suggest you build outside of the source tree. Simply create an object directory and run configure and gmake from there.
% gunzip -c mozilla-source.tar.gz | tar -xf -
This will create a directory called 'mozilla' with the source tree.
% ls mozilla % mkdir obj-mips-sgi-irix6.5 % cd obj-mips-sgi-irix6.5 % setenv CC cc % setenv CXX CC
SGI has tried almost every combination of configure options available, and created bugs/patches for options which did not work on IRIX (see below). Here is a list of working options SGI uses to build the release tarballs.
% ../mozilla/configure --enable-nspr-autoconf --enable-strip-libs --enable-crypto --enable-ldap --enable-ldap-experimental --enable-xsl --enable-mathml --with-extensions=irc,transformiix,xml-rpc,xmlextras,xmlterm --disable-gle --disable-debug --disable-dtd-debug --disable-tests --disable-gtktest --disable-libIDLtest --disable-glibtest
Finally to build mozilla, you need to run gmake. At this point you should go get a coffee.
