Bug 1038639 only really removed --with-system-libxul, made --with-libxul-sdk error out, but left a bunch of conditionals for the --with-libxul-sdk case. Obviously, no one has been using this for over 8 months, since bug 870366 broke the build when LIBXUL_SDK is set by setting an unsupported variable in moz.build in the corresponding branch. Let's just remove it all. If we ever restore some similar functionality (which is actually something I have in mind), it will be completely different anyways.
The configure option has explicitly thrown an error for more than a year now,
and it happens that the remaining way to still forcefully use it has been
broken for more than 8 months.
