Bug 1239217 - Make the RecursiveMake build system create backend files generically. r=gps The current rule is only for "backend.RecursiveMakeBackend", but, with the current default of generating both the RecursiveMake and FasterMake backends, the command creates/refreshes both backends. This is, in fact, how the FasterMake backend is refreshed in most cases. Moreover, with an hybrid backends, the generated file is not "backend.RecursiveMakeBackend" anymore, so we need a more generic way to handle this. Furthermore, it's not necessarily desirable for all backends to have a dependency file to handle the dependencies to refresh the backend, so generate a plain list instead. This has the side effect of making `mach build-backend --diff` more readable for changes to that file. Finally, make the backend.* files created like any other backend file, such that its diff appears in the `mach build-backend --diff` output.
