   In my case, compilation of IceCat 3.6.x in Mandriva 2010.2 is
completely automatic without problems. However, for IceCat 4.0 RC1
compilation has been hard, because I have to modify .mozconfig:

1) Commenting out: ac_add_options --with-system-png
2) Modify --with-java-bin-path=%{java_home}/bin to

In addition I have to compile new versions of some packages:
nss-3.12.9, libnspr4-4.8.7, uClibc-, libpng3-1.2.44,
libsqlite3_0-3.7.5, libpixman-1_0-0.20.2, libcairo2-1.10.2.

After several tries everything compiled fine and IceCat 4.0 RC1 works
well, but a few issues not present in 3.6.x versions:

1) When IceCat is started, neither previous tabs are present, nor the
   position of the main window is saved.

2) Markers previously shown in the main window disappeared. They are
   recovered using the "home" icon -> customize.

3) In some cases the main menu and the option of 2) are greyed out, so
   they not available. Other times they work normally.

   Are some of you experiencing any of those problems?
