Thank you very much for this release, Loic.

Perhaps this can help, while you try to find the solution. I normally do:

make -C browser/installer

and a file icecat*.tar.bz2 (* is for version, architecture,
localization) file is generated in dist directory, which can be
uncompressed to /usr/lib/local/, into a versionless directory. I prefer
then rename to a versioned directory and symlink /usr/lib/local/icecat
to it. Last time I did it was with version 9.0.1. Later, I will try with
your version.
