online-desktop is 'almost' a desktop of its own, but i don't really know
much about Arch's policy considering groups, so you're probably right..

yes, i've already fixed my packages deps, you can delete it now, and i'll
try to search more next time :P

the error message is completely useless, somebody has to try it him/herself,
gentoo already has a patch for it, but i didn't bother to try to rip it off
(for now):

patches are in ../files, they use the firefox engine however, while we're
trying to use xulrunner-1.9...
