Hello Sam and all

Thanks, first draft is up. I've recycled as much of the wording of the
Icecat 14 page as I can. Icecat 17 is worth the trouble, it is able to
render all the Web sites I have tried it with.

Icecat 24 compiles under a fresh installation of Debian Wheezy (XFCE4
version) with a few extra libraries (glibc, dbus-1-dev and some
gstreamer dev libraries) and some minor changes to the .mozconfig file. 

I have not yet found out how to produce a compiled binary of Icecat 24
that I can tar up and transfer to my gNewSense 3.1 laptop. Mozilla
binaries will work on a range of GNU/Linux distributions of various ages
so it must be *possible* to do this, so I shall carry on trying.
