GNU IceCat 6.0.2 i686 binary (en-US) pt-BR

I had a problem building the AUR IceCat 6.0.2 in ArchLinux, so decided to copy 
a build from LFS, and it worked.

Then, with several distributions needed, and failing also to build in Mandriva 
2010.2, I decided to take another approach, perhaps already described here: 
make a binary tarball.

The system used to to build was a VMWare LFS-6.8 box (with several updates).

Attached: .mozconfig.

I used some parts from a FireFox binary build and others from Arch.

The generated icecat-6.0.2.pt-BR.linux-i686.tar.bz2 tarball was unpacked in 
/usr/lib in several distros (actually, I use /usr/lib/icecat-6.0.2 and a link 
/usr/lib/icecat pointing to that).

Tested in the following:

1    ArchLinux LXDE
2    Bodhi Linux Enlightenment
3    Debian LXDE
4    Fedora LXDE
5    Gentoo LXDE
6    Kubuntu
7    Lubuntu
8    Mandriva Gnome 2010.2
9    Mint LXDE
10    OpenSuse LXDE
11    PCLinuxOS LXDE
12    Sabayon LXDE
13    Ubuntu (Low Memory) Enlightenment
14    Ubuntu Gnome
15    Ubuntu LXDE
16    Ubuntu Unity
17    Xubuntu

It is natively in Portuguese (pt-BR), but with installation of en-US.xpi from 
gnuzilla site, it becomes translated into English (tested in two of the above 

All running well, but one retouch was needed for:

OpenSuse and  Fedora
sudo ln -sv /lib/libbz2.so.1.0.6 /lib/libbz2.so.1.0

Mandriva and  PCLinuxOS
sudo ln -sv /usr/lib/libbz2.so.1.0.0 /usr/lib/libbz2.so.1.0

I do not know what must be done in order for not needing this.

Also, if there is interested and someone can host the tarball for distribution, 
please, let me know.
