Porting for Fedora and gnuzilla repository are similar; i have just
removed some useless sections for my purpose (like icecat-mobile stuff)
and modified others.
Of course, my 'makeicecat' is Fedora centric, it's a fork of the
original gnuzilla code, never be an its replacement.

Regarding the Ident String, i do not ever change it following an old
suggestion of Ruben Rodriguez:
