Firefox on sparc64 update

Just a small update on the previous post about firefox on sparc64: after a bit more work, the brand new version 24 ESR builds straight from pkgsrc (so should be included in the next set of binary pkgs).

All open issues (wrong colours on scaled images, failing https, ...) have been resolved.

P.S.: I'm struggling to get my macppc machine running stable (with help from Matt Thomas) - hopefully I can look at firefox on ppc soon.
