 As suggested I attempted to compile with "ac_cv_visibility_pragma=no"
in the .mozconfig.  The compilation failed  with the same messages as  listed 
above.  
The contents of .mozconfig are listed here:
. $topsrcdir/browser/config/mozconfig
mk_add_options MOZ_OBJDIR=@TOPSRCDIR@/../firefox-build
ac_cv_visibility_pragma=no
ac_add_options --prefix=/usr
ac_add_options --with-system-zlib
ac_add_options --with-system-png
ac_add_options --with-system-jpeg
ac_add_options --enable-system-cairo
#ac_add_options --enable-default-toolkit=xlib
ac_add_options --disable-freetype2
ac_add_options --enable-official-branding
ac_add_options --enable-canvas
ac_add_options --enable-svg
ac_add_options --enable-strip
ac_add_options --disable-tests
ac_add_options --disable-installer
ac_add_options --disable-accessibility
ac_add_options --enable-ldap
ac_add_options --with-system-nss

I have gtk+-2.8.20 installed. I don't know if that has anything to do with the 
problem however.
