In fact, you can get all the dependencies from there except the lemon 
thing, but the instructions work for that one. Only remaining problem in 
terms of dependencies is the "re2c" lexer tool. But that one is part of 
yasm, which builds fine with GCC2 (The NetSurf on BeOS instructions mention 
that re2c cannot be built with GCC2). Just follow the instructions here to 
build yasm from source:


"make install" will not install re2c, but it's been built (in the yasm root 
folder) and can be copied manually to /boot/common/bin.

But then netsurf complains:

/Code/home/netsurf> make
M.CONFIG: building with JPEG support
M.CONFIG: building with JNG/MNG/PNG support
M.CONFIG: building without PDF export
M.CONFIG: building without glibc internal iconv
M.CONFIG: building without PNG support
make: *** No rule to make target `build-beos-beos/deps/beos_beos_about.d', 
needed by `build-beos-beos/beos_beos_about.o'.  Stop.


I also just found <http://ports.haiku-files.org/wiki/www-client/netsurf> 
which kind of sums everything up.

Did I mention Haiku-Ports rocks? It does! :-)

Best regards,
