	Oh - wow :-) what fun - we of course, have no need to translate error
messages, and really no need to use glib in libIDL. I see in

xpidl depends on Andrew Veliath and Elliot Lee's libIDL, a part of the
GNOME ORBit C ORB.  We currently require libIDL >= 0.6.3, which in turn
requires glib >= 1.2.0.

	which is quite comic. Taras - any ideas as to how we can build our
embedded mozilla code on OS/X / Windows without requiring glib / iconv
(and/or preferably libIDL) :-) ?
