It won't run with a straight out swap but if the iceweasel script is
renamed to icecat and the run-iceweasel.sh references within are
changed to run-icecat.sh , it seems to run fine . Also,  the line
MOZ_USER_DIR=".mozilla/iceweasel" was changed to
MOZ_USER_DIR=".mozilla/icecat"  but I couldn't determine if that
change was required.

The other difference I ran across is  the new icecat-
version defaults to using profiles in the ~/.mozilla/firefox directory
whereas the previous iceweasel- version had created a new
~/.gnu/iceweasel directory which seems preferable but maybe was done
for compatibility between distros??

Is the creation and use of the ~/.gnu/icecat profile folder equivalent
something that can be accomplished without recompiling? If not, could
you point me to parameters or  source code sections which affects
this?  Thanks.
