    I can't even get firefox to get past 30 seconds worth of the build
    before it goes into a stupid configure script loop.

    This GNU configure stuff is really getting frustrating.  The scripts are 
    unreadable, fragile, and virtually undebuggable.  Nothing is documented
    in any sane way.  There are fifty different versions of the same program
    strewn all over the place.  It's impossible to figure out what is
    running what, where, when, or even WHY.  What a piece of crap.
