It was not binaries.

Finally got time. Built against previously installed Xulrunner-13.0.1.

Needed to have run-icecat.sh in /usr/lib/xulrunner (this is a linkk to

chmod -v 0775 build/unix/run-icecat.sh
cp -v dist/icecat/run-icecat.sh /usr/lib/xulrunner/run-icecat.sh
make install
rm -v /usr/lib/xulrunner/run-icecat.sh
rm -rfv /usr/bin/icecat
rm -rfv /usr/lib/icecat
ln -sv icecat-13.0.1        /usr/lib/icecat
ln -sv ../lib/icecat/icecat /usr/bin/icecat

Generated icecat-13.0.1 directory binary is about 6.2 MB, mored than 20 MB
for a full build, and takes less than 5 min, compared to about 30 in, for
a full build.

In .mozconfig, added the two lines:

# Point to the xulrunner libraries - comment these for a standalone browser
ac_add_options --with-system-libxul
ac_add_options --with-libxul-sdk=/usr/lib/xulrunner-devel-13.0.1

Xulrunner had been previously built in order to build icedtea-web plugin. You 
requested me to send a message, when done.
