Why would this be linux/unix specific? xpdf code is used for the
pdf-import extension, and that is available for Windows as well.

You don't need GNU cp to build on Mac.


You should have read the initial message, or the current situation.
If you use --disable-build-mozilla / --disable-mozilla, you only need
XCode on Mac, no other external stuff. (unless you're on 10.4, then
you also need gnu make >= 3.81)

When building mozilla (nowadays actually seamonkey, but the configure
switch remained the same), you need libIDL and its dependencies in
addition (glib, gettext, and pkg-config for convenience)
