A workaround I use is to add one line to the top of /usr/include/osreldate.h

#define __FreeBSD__ 4

and then in any mozilla file using a __FreeBSD* macro I add a

#include <osreldate.h>

as the first line of the file.

It works, but it's just a simple-minded workaround. The right solution, I
think, is to __DragonFly__ ifify the mozilla source, and ideally, get those
changes merged back up into the mozilla project.
