Subject: Using latest trunk/icecat/browser/installer/packages-static with IceCat 3.6.13 breaks the install

Dear developers,

Yesterday, I tried to merge the code of IceCat 3.6.13 with the latest
improvements from the SVN repository. All went fine until I did a `make
install`, which gave me the following error message:

    /usr/bin/perl ../../xpinstall/packager/xptlink.pl -s ../../dist
-d ../../dist/xpt -f ../../dist/icecat//components -v -x
" /usr/src/icecat/icecat-3.6.13/dist/bin/xpt_link"
    Error: destination directory "../../dist/xpt" is not a directory or is not
writeable. See '../../xpinstall/packager/xptlink.pl --help' for more
    make[1]: *** [stage-package] Error 2
    make[1]: leaving directory
    make: *** [install] Error 2

Actually icecat-3.6.13/dist/xpt did not even exist!

I found the origin of this problem: it comes from the following line in
SVN's trunk/icecat/browser/installer/packages-static (or
browser/installer/packages-static once merged):


After I commented this line by appending a "#" at its beginning, I did:

    make install

And this time all went fine and the browser could be launched with `icecat`.

Please fix this problem that comes from revision 132 of
