Bug 1519307 - Add a new project to build useful parts of breakpad independently. r=froydnj With `ac_add_options --enable-project=tools/crashreporter` in a mozconfig, `./mach build` builds minidump_stackwalk, dump_syms and fileid. One caveat is that due to limitation in how the build system works currently, it's cumbersome to keep dump_syms as a host program for Gecko, and to make it a target program for this project. For now, keep it as a host program. We're not going to use it on automation, but it's still convenient to have for quick local builds (I've had to resort to awful hacks downstream).
