     75        The build times for this version of firefox (using stylo, the new CSS
     76        rendering code) seem to vary widely between different machines. On one
     77        old Intel i3 the build took 33 SBU. The reason for this is not understood.
     78        A build with stylo disabled is typically 1 or 2 SBU quicker and needs
     79        0.8GB less disk space.

    128         The firefox developers wish to enable Stylo (replacement code to handle
    129         Cascading Style Sheets) by default. At the moment that code cannot build
    130         with system versions of nspr and pixman (it fails to find their headers)
    131         so the BLFS editors have chosen to disable it. If you choose to enable
    132         it, you <emphasis>must</emphasis> add <package>clang</package> from
    133         <xref linkend="llvm"/> to the Required dependencies.
