11<para><userinput>--prefix=&mozilla-prefix;</userinput> : Previously mozilla did
12not support the make install option. Hence the package was installed in /opt.
13The package now supports "make install" and follows the FHS guidelines for
14installation. Hence the book now recommends installation in a system wide prefix
15such as /usr.</para>

18--with-system-png --with-system-mng"</userinput></screen>

22support.</para>

33Disable all debugging options and enable all optimization options. You can
34pick and choose from these options. More information on them can be found
35in the mozilla configure script help.</para>
36
37<para><userinput>--enable-extensions=...</userinput> : Enables
38extensions. If you want, you can disable all extensions other than the

54<para><userinput>ln -nsf mozilla-&mozilla-version; ...</userinput> :
55Mozilla installs headers and libraries in version specific directories. This
56link makes symbolic links so that applications that depend on Mozilla (such as
57OpenOffice, Galeon, etc.) don't need to know which version of mozilla is
58installed.
