Thunderbird works fine for me (I'm using it now) but I built it from the 
current mercurial sources:

Looking at your mozconfig, the only options that look a bit iffy to me are:
ac_add_options --with-system-nspr
ac_add_options --with-system-nss
ac_add_options --enable-ldap
ac_add_options --enable-safe-browsing
