Fair enough.

I still wasn't able to reproduce the build failure with the extra packages. It's possible that you have a different version of java than the one I tried building with (openjdk 7), but java doesn't appear to be used during the build process anyway. The only thing that sticks out in a comparison of my logs and yours, is that I get a lot more warnings about there being no preprocessor directives. Have you modified your CPPFLAGS at all?

Yes I know :) I've got a VM for playing, it was easier to run it there :) and it did build succesfully. I'm kinda confused. Will look in to my system a bit later.

In case you're not aware -- there's no need to create a VM for this, see

I'm just trying in a clean archlinux VM installation. Takes a lot of time, I'll post the results.

I had a success at some point with palemoon-git ( after more than couple failed builds ), but its wont build anymore again.

Cheers. Looking at your log, the only differences I can see are that you have doxygen, libxss, gconf, java and wget installed. Did you try building in a clean chroot as well, did that succeed? I'll see if I can reproduce the build failure and narrow down the culprit.

Builds fine here in a clean chroot. Please post the full build log. (To a pastebin service, link here)

Build fails because "Clobber required for gamepad disable (WebIDL change)".

FYI, I built palemoon 27.2.1-1 with gcc 6.3.1-2 to see how the browser behaves. I get very frequent crashes without any real reason. I block any content other than 1st party css and images by default, so no bad javascript or flash issues cause those crashes.

This is not a bug report or anything, so no traces are attached. It's just a heads up for you guys: Don't build with gcc6, stick to gcc5 or if you want gcc4.
