  Close, but not correct - the explanation is in the paragraph above
the instructions to create the mozconfig :

"The commented line for --with-libxul-sdk has an escaped dollar sign
  - if you have chosed to paste the entries into a mozconfig file in
your editor, you do not need the escape, it is only necessary when
invoking a subshell in a HERE document."
----------------------------------------------
I don't get it.
If I do

cat > mozconfig << "EOF"
#ac_add_options --with-libxul-sdk=\$(pkg-config --variable=sdkdir libxul)
EOF

cat mozconfig
#ac_add_options --with-libxul-sdk=\$(pkg-config --variable=sdkdir libxul)

cat > mozconfig << "EOF"
#ac_add_options --with-libxul-sdk=$(pkg-config --variable=sdkdir libxul)
EOF

cat mozconfig
#ac_add_options --with-libxul-sdk=$(pkg-config --variable=sdkdir libxul)
