Really, there's nothing Malta-specific in Gnome or Mozilla.

Take a look at what the configure script really does.  Typically when
something like this happens the config script is trying to link a library
which fails because the library doesn't have the necessary DT_NEEDED
entries due to yet other bugs or the symbol it is tested for doesn't
exist in that particular version.

Having the right compiler version is very important to get some gnome code
to work.  Even more so if it's written in C++ and for KDE code.  You may
want to check you're using the same versions as i.e. i386 was using for
the same distribution.

How about cheating, the Debian people got it working ;-)
