Can someone give me some advice. I'm a bit of a newbie to this building stuff. I'm following build instructions for mozilla Thunderbird, but it just doesn't work.

i get to the bit where it says ---> to run - type:

cd c:\mozilla\mozilla\thunderbird\bin\ thunderbird.exe -console

this directory does not exist. there is no thunderbird folder. I guess that means me make has not completed. but it appears to finish without errors....

any ideas?
