I would like to build the latest version of GNU IceCat in a 64bit Raspberry Pi OS environment running on a Raspberry Pi 4 with a Broadcom BCM2711B0 Quad-core Cortex-A72 (ARM v8) 64-bit SoC @ 1.5 GHz processor and 4 GB of memory.

Linux raspberrypi 5.4.79-v8+ #1373 SMP PREEMPT Mon Nov 23 13:32:41 GMP 2020 aarch64 GNU/Linux what "uname -a" says about the environment.

The GNU IceCat source files are available from https://www.gnu.org/software/gnuzilla/

I can follow directions, but I'm not an expert. As such, I would greatly appreciate a list of commands to type. And I will be glad to report back on the results. I know a build on the pi could take days or maybe even weeks. And I'm OK with that.

One of my motivations is the hope of installing a browser capable of sharing screens in google meet. That is something that chromium 32 and Firefox-fsb do not yet do.

Also, I love cats and GNU.
