You can install the shared libraries from gcc-3.3 and then delete the
rest if you follow the instructions in BLFS
install them for the RealPlayer. I downloaded the source but I couldn't
get it to go (or rather, I couldn't be bothered working it out - does
anyone here know how to build realplayer 10 from the source?)

I'm not sure about that but I think Firefox has to create some files and
configure itself the first time it's run so it has to be run by someone
who has write privileges in the system folders. Running a browser as
root is not a good idea so those commands do the same thing but without
actually going out on the web as root.
If you like the way Mozilla build Firefox (all in one folder) don't want
run make install post back and I'll explain how to do it the mozilla
