Slackware64-current and Firefox-48.0


Tried building the newly released Firefox-48.0 on a Slack64-current machine. Build crashes early on with the following -

--enable-cpp-rtti
--disable-gnomevfs
--disable-accessibility
--disable-crashreporter
--disable-debug
--disable-pedantic
--disable-installer
checking for a shell... /bin/sh
checking for host system type... x86_64-pc-linux-gnu
checking for target system type... x86_64-pc-linux-gnu
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/tmp/firefox-48.0/configure.py", line 94, in <module>
sys.exit(main(sys.argv))
File "/tmp/firefox-48.0/configure.py", line 22, in main
sandbox.run(os.path.join(os.path.dirname(__file__), 'moz.configure'))
File "/tmp/firefox-48.0/python/mozbuild/mozbuild/configure/__init__.py", line 239, in run
raise InvalidOptionError('Unknown option: %s' % without_value)
mozbuild.configure.options.InvalidOptionError: Unknown option: --libdir
*** Fix above errors and then restart with\
"make -f client.mk build"
/tmp/firefox-48.0/client.mk:370: recipe for target 'configure' failed
make[3]: *** [configure] Error 1

make[1]: Leaving directory '/tmp/firefox-48.0'
client.mk:168: recipe for target 'build' failed

I tried removing the --libdir entry from the build script and that eliminated that specific error but the others remain. I'm not sure what is causing the errors with configure.py. Can anyone shed light on the problem for me? Thanks in advance.

Is this a regression from when you built the previous firefox version?

OK, I had a look here (http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/blfs...t/firefox.html) and according to that website software versions on Slack64-current aren't up to the dependency requirements for Firefox-48.0 yet. Compared my installed versions with those listed on the linuxfromscratch web site. So closing case until Slack catches up and moves on from 47.0.1.
