Steps to reproduce:

On Exherbo linux we prefix our toolchain by the host variable, e.g. x86_64-pc-linux-gnu-readelf to support native cross-compiling. When compiling thunderbird with TOOLCHAIN_PREFIX=x86_64-pc-linux-gnu- as an option added to the make command line, one would expect this to actually be added properly to all commands (in fact it looks like the makefile tries to do this too!)

Expected results:

I think TOOLCHAIN_PREFIX is being unset or not being passed through to the elf hack part of the build. I'm not an expert on the mozilla buildsystem but is it possible it has to do with mozilla/config/emptyvars.mk which sets this to empty?

Firefox does build with TOOLCHAIN_PREFIX set, though this is unlikely unimportant.
