i was trying the gentoo 0.8.6-beta2 ebuild, upgrading from 0.8.5-r5.

the older ebuild uses --enable-mozilla=firefox and works fine.

the newer ebuild also uses --enable-mozilla=firefox, which does not 
produce any configure errors, but the BUILD_MOZILLA flags end up being 
set so that the plugin is not built.

i had to change --enable-mozilla=firefox to --enable-mozilla, and set 
both XPIDL and MOZILLA_CONFIG, to cause the plugin to be built.

is the --enable-mozilla=firefox syntax supported?  or is setting XPIDL 
and MOZILLA_CONFIG supposed to be the correct way?
