Bug 1134039: Make SpiderMonkey standalone (JS_STANDALONE) builds use jemalloc and mozglue by default. r=glandium JS_STANDALONE builds don't need everything in mozglue; have mozglue omit the unneeded code for such builds. Since the SpiderMonkey binaries are now more like the other Gecko binaries, we can remove some special cases for JS_STANDALONE in GeckoSharedLibrary, GeckoProgram, etc. All Gecko binaries now use mozglue, which contains mfbt, so we no longer need mention mfbt explicitly. Add a property to the getBuildConfiguration testing function's result that indicates whether we're using jemalloc or not. Include the newly necessary source directories in the SpiderMonkey source package.

If you have a question about developing Mozilla, and can't find the solution
on, you can try asking your question in a

testing, may be buggy. Firefox nightlies, for example, can be found at:
