Running Mozilla on OpenBSD

Evan pointed us towards an OpenBSD Journal article that contains more comments and some relevant links. There's still several caveats with running Mozilla on OpenBSD but progress is being made.

More likely it has to do with nspr, psm or even the assembly stubs, or the lack thereof for XPConnect. If OpenBSD is not one of the supported nspr platforms I can see that being the biggest hurdle to overcome. Once done, I imagine it's no harder to get it going than any other Unix platform.
