It seems that not defining WITH_MOZILLA now implies that you
want firefox. I was rather suprised when I went to upgrade
www/mplayer-plugin and found firefox being built especially
when the only documentation says you don't needed to define
AUTHOR: [hidden email] Mozilla will now default to using GTK2, and will only compile
against Gtk+-1.2 if explicitly requested. This is in exact
opposite to the old behaviour.
The valid values of WITH_MOZILLA are now:
mozilla (www/mozilla, GTK2)
mozilla-devel (www/mozilla-devel, GTK2)
mozilla-gtk1 (www/mozilla-gtk1, GTK1)
mozilla-devel-gtk1 (www/mozilla-devel-gtk1, GTK1)
As before, WITH_MOZILLA can be set in /etc/make.conf, but doing
so is not advised unless you desire the development versions.
GTK2 browsers will automatically compile against GTK2 mozilla,
and GTK1 browsers (galeon1, galeon1, and galeon1) will
automatically compile against GTK1.
Again, the only people who will need to take action are those
who desire development versions (which are inactive at this time
anyway). Those who want GTK1 mozilla-devel must set
WITH_MOZILLA=mozilla-devel-gtk1 or they will be pleasantly
surprised with their very own GTK2 installation on the next
WITH_MOZILLA=mozilla-gtk2 and WITH_MOZILLA=mozilla-devel-gtk2
are still honoured for the time being, but their use is
now deprecated. Any new ports are not required to consider
their values, and so eventually WITH_MOZILLA _will_ have to
Hopefully galeon2 can catch up to peoples' expectations from
galeon1 soon, and we can remove the GTK1 ports altogether.
