I am trying to build libgluezilla - which is important part of mono (required by webbrowser package) which was removed from latest ubuntu version, however I get this:

checking Mozilla XPCOM 1.8... You need to install the Mozilla XPCOM development package.

What is that and how I find it? I installed mozilla XULRunner which is supposed to contain this, however it didn't solve the issue.

Is there any simpler guide which is based on ubuntu? The link you provided describe the process on linux in general, I suppose there is some package for that – Petr Jul 16 '12 at 12:15
The article is more than 10 years old and doesn't seem to answer this question. What exactly am I suppose to download and from where? It describes installation steps, assuming I have some source codes, but where I get them? – Petr Jul 16 '12 at 12:19
You need to install Xulrunner for xpcom as described here – atenz Jul 16 '12 at 12:33
That's what I have done, but it doesn't help – Petr Jul 16 '12 at 12:34
