Bug 969164 - Replace most BUILDING_JS uses with JS_STANDALONE. r=gps Before making top-level traverse js/src moz.build files, there was a need to distinguish between top-level traversing e.g. top-level moz.build or config/moz.build and js/src traversing them. With a single traversal of both moz.build sets, we now only need to distinguish between js standalone builds and gecko builds. There is still, however, a need to distinguish between top-level vs. js/src configure runs on gecko builds to make them subconfigure icu and libffi from top-level instead of js/src in js standalone builds, or when choosing to make js/src's config.status do something when run or not.

To have your bug fix / feature added to Mozilla, you should create a patch and
submit it to Bugzilla (https://bugzilla.mozilla.org). Instructions are at:

    http://developer.mozilla.org/en/docs/Creating_a_patch
    http://developer.mozilla.org/en/docs/Getting_your_patch_in_the_tree

If you have a question about developing Mozilla, and can't find the solution
on http://developer.mozilla.org, you can try asking your question in a
mozilla.* Usenet group, or on IRC at irc.mozilla.org. [The Mozilla news groups
are accessible on Google Groups, or news.mozilla.org with a NNTP reader.]

You can download nightly development builds from the Mozilla FTP server.
Keep in mind that nightly builds, which are used by Mozilla developers for
testing, may be buggy. Firefox nightlies, for example, can be found at:
