cannot compile firebird using abs

Tried to make my own binary of mozilla firebird using abs and makpkg and got the following error:

                 from nsDeviceContextGTK.cpp:79:

I did run abs beforehand so I should have all the latest files - any hints on this?

Re: cannot compile firebird using abs

due to a recent upgrade of freetype it now needs to be included differently in the source files.
I think you can solve the problem by editing mozilla/gfx/src/gtk/nsDeviceContextGTK.cpp
and adding

#include <ft2build.h>
#include FT_FREETYPE_H

somewhere at the top of the file where other lines starting with #include are
you may have do do this with other files as well, if you get this error again.

if you run makepkg again, all changes you made are undone, so it would be easier if someone could make a patch file
