Not having built firefox, I can't really argue.  However, I've always found
that any ubuntu/debian package could be rebuilt with something like:

	apt-get install devscripts
	apt-get build-dep <package>
	apt-get source <package>
	cd <package-dir>
	debbuild -us -uc

as described here:

Is this not true of firefox or is it the patch that causes the problem?
