Did you use --with-mozilla-sdk-path?

I think we have a problem here that two distros is putting these files 
in seperate directories and it doesn't mix well with one approach. FC 
and RH distro store the devel stuf in a mozilla-devel package which 
doesn't seem to use the gecko-sdk yet. Hence our problem.

The change I made was to make sure the mozilla plugin would built on RH 
and FC systems.

How can we solve this for both type of distros?
