I forgot to say I try to build the package on a clean and updated FC6 install.
Do you have the firefox-devel and epiphany-devel packages installed? If so, what
versions? Does it build okay through Mock for you?
What strikes me as very odd about this bug is that it builds just fine in Mock
(tested yesterday evening as I was updating it to 2.16.1-1) and a standard
`rpmbuild --rebuild`. Therefore, the BuildRequires are correct, and it seems
that, without any more information, this might be a problem specific to your
With mock src builds fine. I close this bug.
