follow the instructions in *Building* section: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Boot_to_Gecko/Building_Boot_to_Gecko

**NOTES**

I had to use the following commands to successfully build on my Macbook Pro.

1. type "ccache -M --max-size=0" & press enter, this creates an unlimited buffer size
for the building process

2. type "ccache -C" & press enter, this will clear the build cache

3. type "./build.sh -j2" & press enter, this tells the build script to only use 2 CPU
cores (you can use -jX to specify the number of cores you wish to use or just type "./build.sh"
to use all of your CPU cores).

I found that the build would lock up when using "./build.sh" but had no problems building
with "./build.sh -j2".

If you keep running into problems while attempting your build you can use "./build.sh -j1
showcommand" to force the build to run on 1 core (no parallel processing) and get a verbose
output in the terminal of what is happening during the build process.

Another problem that I ran into was that the B2G repo was not always stable; I keep updating
to the latest repo over the span of a week before I was able to get a copy of the source that
would successfully build.
