Bug 1275419 - Deprecate --enable-build-backend and add --build-backends. r=chmanchester --enable-build-backend was taking a list of additional backends to add to the defaults. Changes to allow to disable some of the defaults is not possible in a straightforward way, so introduce a new --build-backends option that sets the exact set of wanted backends, but also allows to add and remove from the defaults with + or -. --build-backends=+CompileDB is equivalent to --enable-build-backend=CompileDB. --build-backends=-VisualStudio disables the VS backend when it's automatically enabled.
