Hi, just came across this thread (don't follow as closely OI anymore).
Firefox can build okay on SunOS with gcc, you do need to avoid 64-bit
for fatval reasons, I believe still... wrt 48-bit addressing munging.
(perhaps the new 64 bit dev version addresses that, haven't checked yet)
I have been using esr24 since quite a long while now on pkgsrc, and
have just gotten esr31 ff working recently (with shared xulrunner) and
am currently upgrading tbird/enigmail.
I'm pretty sure it's possible with OI/Hipster with appropriate tweeking.
My pkgsrc patches haven't made it into the pack yet, but if anybody
needs, give a holler.
