Install jsapi.h for gxine-0.5.0 Slackware

I m trying to do a source install of gxine-0.5.0. Previous version of gxine apparently used
a static version of spidermonkey as I would always get warning that "building with internal spidermonkey was deprecated".

When I try to build gxine on a Slackware 10.1 system I get the following error at configuration
checking for smjs/jsapi.h... no
checking for js/jsapi.h... no
error: libjs not found
As I understand it spidermonkey is the js implementation of java and can be built into mozilla and firefox builds. It looks like it can also be built as a standalone libarary and I found a X86_64 package for spidermonkey at linuxpackages. The package submitter did not supply build scripts. I found some js build documentation but it is mainly focused on adding to a mozilla/firefox build and is a little confusing to me.

JS build

Anyone aware of a website that describes how to build in the js libarary in my next firefox build or howto to build the standalone libarary.

Thanks ahead for time for any replies

I've got the same problem and I finaly get it working

1)Make a symlink of js directory from mozilla:
ln -s /usr/include/mozilla-1.7.11/js /usr/include/js

2)Make a symlink of to to avoid a problem at compilation
ln -s /usr/lib/mozilla-1.7.11/ /usr/lib/

3)Watch movies

I made a .tgz package if you want

Somehow this did not come up on my email notification. I've upgraded to Mozilla-1.7.12 so I better make my own symlinks.
