I cannot try these builds right now, can anyone mention (about:buildconfig) if GCC 2.95 or 3.2 was used ? Purpose is to be able to use JRE 1.3.1 (not 1.4.2 because some app requires 1.3.1 only... can't help that) with 1.4 or 1.5.

I have to support several Mac OS 9 users who, for whatever reasons, refuse to upgrade to OS X. Last official Mozilla build for OS 9 was 1.2.1. I wonder if anyone with a similar situation has taken up the seemingly daunting task of building newer Mozillas on MAc OS 9, and whether they would consider sharing their builds...

I my use the last release based on the 1.0 branch when I'm in Mac OS 9...It still works well.
