What a hack

I'm tired of the lack of extension support of camino (an os x specific variant of the mozilla gecko rendering engine) and want to fix some of the things that were really annoying about firefox on os x. This requires building mozilla, and that requires building glib and libIDL.

glib wasn't too bad other than needing gettext.

libIDL was a pain. So I hacked it so it built, and then discovered I built a much earlier version.

The new one built much easier, other than discovering that libiconv which something depended on wasnt built with -flat_namespace.
