Description of problem:
I am trying to install the latest of vlc with the mozilla plugin enabled. I have
mozilla and mozilla-devel installed but the configure line returns stating that
mozilla-config was not found. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
VLC SVN Revision 16118 though I believe the same error occurs on 0.8.5 just with
a different error message.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Check out VLC SVN Release
2. Ensure you have mozilla and mozilla-devel installed
3. Run the following configure line

./configure --prefix=/usr --enable-mozilla --enable-mpeg2dec --disable-mad
--disable-wxwidgets --with-mozilla-sdk=/usr/lib/mozilla-1.7.12/
Actual results:
checking for gnutls/gnutls.h... no
checking whether the byte order is big-endian... no
checking for mozilla-config... no
checking for xulrunner-config... no
configure: error: Please install the Mozilla development tools, mozilla-config
was not found.

Expected results:
Configure to complete correctly.

Additional info:

Neither mozilla-config or xulrunner-config are present on the system.

[root@bloodhound3 vlc_trunk]# locate mozilla-config
[root@bloodhound3 vlc_trunk]# locate xulrunner
[root@bloodhound3 vlc_trunk]#

Fedora Core 5 is no longer supported, could you please reproduce this with the
updated version of the currently supported distribution (Fedora Core 6, or
Fedora 7, or Rawhide)? If this issue turns out to still be reproducible, please
let us know in this bug report.  If after a month's time we have not heard back
from you, we will have to close this bug as CANTFIX.

Setting status to NEEDINFO, and awaiting information from the reporter.

Thanks in advance.

We haven't got any reply to the last question about reproducability of the bug
with Fedora Core 6, Fedora 7, or Fedora devel. Mass closing this bug, so if you
have new information that would help us fix this bug, please reopen it with the
additional information.
