I should mention that at present, the results of running
"guix build --source icecat" will not be satisfactory.  In particular,
the resulting source tarball will *not* include the most important fixes
that I mentioned in my previous email.  For now, the best approach is to
checkout the '68' branch of gnuzilla.git, apply the patch I provided,
and build the resulting source tarball.

Hopefully in the next week or so, I'll fix the Guix package so that
"guix build --source icecat" produces a suitable source tarball.
