The newer versions of xulrunner that will be with Firefox 3 redefined one of the functions that yelp uses. There is a patch waiting to be accepted by upstream: http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=499744 (http://bugzilla.gnome.org/attachment.cgi?id=99663&action=view) I applied it locally and it works fine with the newest xulrunner snapshots.
That bug says there's still changes in the works. We'll wait for an updated patch.

Upstream has committed the latest version of their patch. I tested on my system against 2.20.0 and it seems to work ok.

2.22.1-r1 seems to compile and run fine with xulrunner-1.9. Good to close?

!xulrunner? ( =www-client/mozilla-firefox-2* )
xulrunner? ( =net-libs/xulrunner-1.8* )
perhaps it runs fine with xulrunner-1.9 ....
mozilla-firefox-3.0 is out
ebuild has to be fixed ...
I was trying to make yelp build with xulrunner 1.9
and though I think I succeeded (it did emerge and didn't crash at start),
I still have a few questions:
1. Is there any reason why that macro seems to prefer libxul-embedding to libxul ?
2. Why are the libs split between $sdkdir and $sdkdir/lib/sdk (some are duplicated there) ?
That's all I remember right now.
BTW, unless I'm missing something, it's a bit annoying that for 1.8 it should be set to xulrunner and for 1.9 - to libxul.

patch to build with xulrunner 1.9
For future reference, the patch I used to build it.
I'm not sure if I accidentally broke it for 1.8 or not.
The patch works fine for me with xulrunner-1.9.

ebuild including the patch proposed by Rafal
I changed the ebuild to configure --with-gecko=libxul if the xulrunner USE flag is set.
The real question is: does it still build with 1.8 ?
*** Bug 231743 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
I've been building firefox-3* against xulrunner-1.9 w/o issue.
However, Bug 231743 has been marked a duplicate of this bug concerning the depends with the Yelp ebuild?
Similar to epiphany, I've committed yelp-2.22.1-r10 that uses xulrunner 1.9.
