For Pat: MINOR patch for mozilla-firefox.SlackBuild


Earlier today I came across a problem where I had a blow-up of my 64-current base installation partition (the one I use for clean builds). Between 3 versions of Firefox, ffmpeg and the SBo folder, I managed to completely fill up the partition to the point I couldn't even log in with my regular user account. After getting the /tmp folder cleaned out, I went back and retried to build the latest Firefox beta, pointing $TMP a folder on my huge workspace partition. But it puked as soon as it tried to find the autoconf-tmp folder but couldn't. Looking at the script, I made this adjustment that you may want to incorporate into the SB script (works like a charm here, but the usual disclaimer YMMV.)
Code:
--- mozilla-firefox.SlackBuild.orig	2017-04-23 15:51:27.000000000 -0400
+++ mozilla-firefox.SlackBuild	2017-05-07 22:22:22.910699448 -0400

 # We need to use the incredibly ancient autoconf-2.13 for this  :/
 ( cd $CWD/autoconf ; ./autoconf.build )
-PATH=/tmp/autoconf-tmp/usr/bin:$PATH
+PATH=$TMP/autoconf-tmp/usr/bin:$PATH
 
 cd $TMP
 rm -rf firefox-$VERSION
Hope this helps.

Thanks, have this change made locally now in mozilla-firefox.SlackBuild, mozilla-thunderbird.SlackBuild, and seamonkey.SlackBuild.
