Dear giuseppe,

first of all thanks for maintaining icecat, of course!

Just trying to build icecat-3.5 from source.

Got the following error:

-- 8< ----- *SNIP*

PYTHONPATH=../../../../xpcom/idl-parser \
          /usr/bin/python ./qsgen.py \
          --idlpath=../../../../dist/idl \
          --cachedir=../../../../xpcom/idl-parser \
          --header-output dom_quickstubs.h \
          --stub-output dom_quickstubs.cpp \
          --makedepend-output .deps/dom_qsgen.pp \
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "./qsgen.py", line 131, in <module>
    import xpidl
 line 47, in <module>
    from ply import lex, yacc
ImportError: No module named ply
make[5]: *** [dom_quickstubs.h] Error 1
make[5]: Leaving directory 

--8< ----- *SNIP*

Actually, I find that the firefox-3.5 distro does have a ply directory:

          |-- COPYING
          |-- README
          `-- ply
              |-- __init__.py
              |-- lex.py
              `-- yacc.py

which icecat does not (and, in fact, I built firefox-3.5 and did not
find this problem).

>From the path to ply and the contents of COPYING and README I vaguely
guess that its absence in the icecat tarball might be related to license

My questions are:

=> am I the only one stumbling on this? I've been  updating icecat from source
   since and never found this...
=> if the ply subdir has been intentionally dropped from icecat, does
   this mean that I have to install ply by myself? (looks like it is
   available as a free and GPL'ed software) or maybe there is some
   configure option I might use to avoid pulling in the ply module
   during the build?

Thanks in advance for any hint
(I can send you my configure options etc. if needed)
