Well, it runs [1]. Slooooowly [2] but it runs! :P

I found the quoted page yesterday and I started compiling it with this 
.mozconfig [3] (and with a fixed Openmoko Toolchain). Building working 
binaries isn't so easy due to some compilation errors that I was able to 
fix only workarounding them (I had no time to fix the compilation scripts).

However you can find my binaries here [4], they need some external 
packages like libidl-2-0 that you can grab from the angstrom repo.
Then, simply put the fennec dir in your freerunner and run ./fennec (use 
DISPLAY=:0 dbus-launch if you start it from ssh).

[3] I had to use Xfbdev in my phone [4], maybe Xglamo works a little
     better, however the main problem is the CPU/RAM usage (of X too).
     I've to check if there are some better compilation flags!
     BTW it runs quite well in  maemo, so I hope it will also in Om.
