Look at pr20297: http://gcc.gnu.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=20297

Seems to do with the #pragma visibility thing (not that I understand
what that means at all :-).  Juerg at Paldo applies this patch to
gcc-4.0 specifically for Firefox-1.5.  You may have to fool around
with a gcc snapshot because the Mozilla devs in the PR say this isn't
fixed with gcc-4.1 either.


I don't have the resources to test this out, but maybe it will help. 
I know paldo builds x86_64 pure64 style and they seem to have a
working system.
