Seamonkey 2.53.3 fails to compile

So I was trying to compile ALSA support for Seamonkey, and after like 4 hours of compiling I was greeted with this error:

I'm sure I had installed all the required dependencies (otherwise I wouldn't have been able to use the configure script in the first place), so I have no idea what causes this error. I disabled PulseAudio and enabled ALSA at the first build, which resulted in this error. Then I removed the --disable-pulseaudio from my mozconfig and only left --enable-alsa, and the same error happens. 8 hours of compiling wasted...

Re: Seamonkey 2.53.3 fails to compile

Wow. Didn't  know Seamonkey project was resurected. Haven't compiled Seamonkey in years, Try commenting out the entire tgkill function starting at line line number 109 in

/home/job/Software/seamonkey/seamonkey-2.53.3/mozilla/toolkit/crashreporter/breakpad-client/linux/handler/exception_handler.cc

and re-compile.

In other words, comment out every line starting at line 109 until you find a } and comment out that line as well.
