 No, the configure statement *looks* obviously wrong, but it does no
harm.  The mozilla configure/build/install code is very different from
anything else, probably because it was originally written to produce
binary installs.  There are other ways of building it (and they produce
different problems) - see the arichives for e.g. last month.

 People have already pointed the finger at fonts, so I'll just add that
the _disableObsoleteExtensions message is normal.
