Error is as follows:

Using dragonfly bsd newest one here, updated pkgsrc using directions in

bmake install clean

and I get eror:

error: static assertion failed: size of wchar_t must be 2

*** Error Code 2


bmake stopped in /usr/pkgsrc/www.firefox
*Error Code 1

But error is typed out only :( since I don't have mouse in xfce and
just using plain terminal :(

Best Regards,
