Mozilla Firefox is a free, open-source and cross-platform web browser
for Windows, Linux, MacOS X and many other operating systems.

It is fast and easy to use, and offers many advantages over other web
browsers, such as tabbed browsing and the ability to block pop-up

Firefox also offers excellent bookmark and history management, and it
can be extended by developers using industry standards such as XML,
CSS, JavaScript, C++, etc. Many extensions are available.

This package provides Firefox 78 ESR.

Log message:
firefox78: Honor user's compiler choice again, don't require Python 2.

The python 2 dependency was seemingly removed in Firefox 78.0 so we
can remove those old hacks.

Firefox needs clang for some unknown part of the build process (rust
related?), even if building with GCC.

The previous solution in pkgsrc was to force the use of clang, because
pkgsrc provides cwrappers which provided gcc-as-clang, which broke
everything. Instead, override the clang wrapper with the actual clang

This means the majority of the build happens with GCC (or ccache, distcc,
whatever the user chooses, rather than overriding it with clang). Should help
sparc64, where clang doesn't work too well.

Full build tested on NetBSD/amd64.

Now mk/endian.mk has been removed and include mk/compiler.mk
explicitly to use clang only.
