Mozilla has to bundle to ship on Windows, Mac, even their builds for 
Linux where they don't control what versions of libraries are present on 
the system, if they are installed at all (hooray choice!).  That has 
absolutely no bearing at all on Fedora however because we can and do 
build with system libraries, and have done so for ages, precisely 
because they are good at providing build support for that.
