With everything in place I entered the command to compile. After approximately 50 minutes (on a 1.7 GHz Celeron w/1gig ram) the build completed successfully.

[[Image:Example=== Conclusion ===I was actually surprised at the sheer size of the source code for Firefox and the fact that through a few commands all of it would come together to form a very versatile program. In the past the largest program I had created was around 15,000 lines of code in VB6 at the time I thought it was a daunting achievement. It has really been enlightening to build this program and to actually be able to poke around in the source code. Overall I thought it would have been a lot harder to compile such a large program and I feel that the experience (though frustrating) was worth while.jpg]]
