Hello Matti,

The actual error that prevents the build to succeed is (grep 'error:' build_err):

ipc/chromium/src/build/build_config.h:64:2: error: #error Please add support for your architecture in build/build_config.h

Debian has succeeded at making IceWeasel 6.0.2 work on mipsel. If you want IceCat 6.0.2 to build on Loongson 2F (Yeeloong's processor), I suggest you reading the patches included in their package at http://packages.debian.org/sid/iceweasel.

To extract their package, you first have to download iceweasel_6.0.2-1.dsc, iceweasel_6.0.2.orig.tar.bz2 and iceweasel_6.0.2-1.debian.tar.gz, then:

    dpkg-source -x iceweasel_6.0.2-1.dsc

will create a directory "iceweasel-6.0.2" in which you will find a directory named "debian/patches/porting". The patch you are looking for is in there (I forgot the name). I tried myself to build IceCat 6.0.2 after I applied the patch but then the build failed with an other error message.

I wish you will be able to build IceCat 6.0.2 successfully.

Please keep us informed of your progress.
