I've compiled Firebird on Linux using GCC 3.3.2 with XFT and GTK2 for the Pentium 4 with SSE2 optimisations. I compiled this build using Fedora Core 0.95. The build is here:

http://pryan.org/firebird/aebrahim/Mozi ... e2.tar.bz2 (8.4MB)

I used the following .mozconfig to build:

. $topsrcdir/browser/config/mozconfig
ac_add_options --disable-tests
ac_add_options --disable-debug
ac_add_options --enable-optimize="-O3 -march=pentium4 -mfpmath=sse -msse2"
ac_add_options --enable-xft
ac_add_options --enable-default-toolkit=gtk2

This is my first attempt at a Linux build, so please bear with any problems that you might have (though it works fine for me). :)

Will it also give a SSE-build(Athlon XP)?

It's very nice to have you here in linux area! I'm sure more linuxers out there would like to thank you too. I'll try it on my own.

Why is the Linux build so bigger than Win32 build?
Only for curiosity :)

No, on Linux its easy enough to roll your own build (I'm a relative newbie to Linux and still managed it without problems), so I'm not going to spend time making customised builds for plaforms that I'm not using myself.

The Linux build is a dynamic build, which increases the size a little bit. I'm not sure why it's so much bigger. I guess that's just the way it is. :) Can anyone else be more specific than I?
