Amazingly, bug 1187613 is the only build problem I've been able to find doing simple, plain-vanilla 64-bit, 32-bit and universal builds on OS X 10.11 (Beta 8, build 15A279b).  I'm very pleasantly surprised :-)

One thing to note, though, before doing your own builds:

You need to double-click on XCode-beta.app at least once and allow it to run its setup scripts.  If you haven't done that "xcode-select -p" will return the wrong answer and your build will fail running find_sdk.py.
Another thing to note:

If you plan to set up any of Mozilla's build prerequisites "by hand", you may first need to turn off El Camino's "rootless mode".  This prevents even someone running as root from altering any system files.

Here's how to disable "rootless mode":

1) Boot into El Capitan, then boot into the El Capitan "Recovery System"
(https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201314).

2) Run Terminal.

3) In Terminal, use the csrutil tool to disable "System Integrity Protection":

$ csrutil disable
> El Camino

El Capitan

Er, oops :-)
