thanks a lot for pointing me out the relevant dates: so this means that
the version with the posted md5 sum works (according to
which, however, was posted on Sun, 06 Jul 2008 14:53:11)
while a *following* version is broken again. mmhh: something seems to be
weird here.

well, the problem is in the icecat shell script, which tries to run
run-mozilla.sh, while it should run run-icecat.sh. Actually, in the
unpacked tarball there is a create.sh script which apparently configures
and makes the whole thing and ends with:

perl -pi -e"s/run-mozilla.sh/run-icecat.sh/g" \
     dist/icecat-`cat browser/config/version.txt`/icecat

which looks exactly what should be needed to make things work
smoothly. But this create.sh looks like a temporary script left there by
giuseppe and surely not for general use.

Of course, I could just run a sed on the installed icecat script, but if
that is necessary, then this means that something is not OK with my
build procedure, and I would understand what.

However, thank you very much again for your time: at least I am now
confident that the downloaded file and the generation of its md5 checksum
are correct.

Oh, and apologies for being so clumsy with mail lists: I've seen that my
previous message in the thread comes out as "Message not available",
maybe because I've sent it to the list and cc'ed to you. I am now trying
the opposite and see what happens.

thanks again
