Bug 1375798 - Reorganize the library_name_info function. r=mshal The function as it currently is matches how things were done in old-configure.in. However, that's just confusing and hard to follow. In fact, the unit test failing numerous times while writing this patch pretty much highlights the problem. So instead of a confusing set of overrides to the prefixes and suffixes, spell out the whole set for each set of platforms. This also happens to make the function shorter. Win/win. At the same time, we normalize the function output as a nested namespace, where we get, for each of dll, lib, import_lib, etc. a prefix/suffix pair. Further down the road, we can imagine changing those to class instances with a method allowing to format file names based on those prefix/suffixes.
