I prefer to leave the period off mozconfig. Makes it easier to keep track of in the Finder.

Also, for the objdir line, I have

mk_add_options MOZ_OBJDIR=@TOPSRCDIR@/obj-cm

as mozilla's .hgignore specifies top-level directories starting with 'obj' as being ignored.


Why does Mozilla require this version in particular? (I presumed that my autoconf 2.60 would work, was surprised when I realised the wiki meant *only* 2.13, rather than 'at least 2.13'). Nate 08:30, 27 September 2010 (UTC)

Short version: newer versions of autoconf removed a couple of critical features required by the Mozilla build system, and the autoconf maintainers have steadfastly refused to restore the features. (Long version: there's a sordid bug out there somewhere with all the gory details.) —Sardisson 05:18, 29 September 2010 (UTC)
