Hi Ludovic,

I see there is something broken in the build system and I'll need to
take a look at it so sorry me too for the dirty solution I'll show you
but at least you can have something working until a better solution will
come :-) 
What do you think about build xulrunner and after build the browser
without specify the xul library to use?  The additional cost is that
libxul will be build twice.
