The mozilla and Firefox applications are not helpful by themselves. They
do do not have the compile and linking information for building
applications with them. I believe you need the pkg-config information
for building. This is often provide in a -devel package. You can build
mozilla yourself to get the pkg-config information.

You probably want a package named mozilla-devel to compile yelp. Check
your packaging system (fink, darwin ports, ...) for the devel package.

If you are building all GNOME, you should be building mozilla (in which
case I suggest using jhbuild to manage the dependencies and build order: You can learn about building mozilla by
hand at
