That is very odd. I never noticed this before. Just for the sake of
my knowledge, could you post the configure error to -dev. I would like
to re-examine this issue. The default Mozilla builds with the extensions
line found in browser/config/mozconfig in the source tree. This is how
it would be built if we used the client.mk build instructions suggested
by Mozilla (which ends up with the same end-result).

No, we should absolutely not do that. Please read the source build
documentation on the Moz web site about this. Using =all will break
certain components of Firefox, including the word search utility,
among other things.
