[vlc-devel] firefox 1.5 and vlc 0.8.6

whereas with vlc 0.8.5 the moz plugin can be built against firefox 1.5 
by giving --enable-mozilla=firefox to configure, and without specifying 
any sdk path, this seems to just be ignored with 0.8.6 beta 2.

just using --enable-mozilla results in an error since mozilla-config 
cannot be found.

ultimately something like this is necessary:
MOZILLA_CONFIG=/usr/lib/mozilla-firefox/firefox-config ./configure 

perusing the configure script, it seems as though firefox support was 
dropped in favor of xulrunner (which, i guess, is what firefox 2 is 
built on).

is this the case?  are there reasons why i shouldn't try to use the moz 
plugin with firefox 1.5?
