.0 fails to build from source tarball
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux i686 on x86_64; rv:46.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/46.0 Build ID: 20160510224441 Steps to reproduce: 1. Download source tarball : firefox-47.0.source.tar.xz I have all prerequisites installed, including autoconf-2.13 (which wasn't necessary for 46.0.1, but absence causes 47.0 to fail early). 2. Extract. "ls -s broswer/config/mozconfig .mozconfig". "mkdir obj". "cd obj" 3. Configure: ../configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc --localstatedir=/var --enable-default-toolkit=cairo-gtk2 \ --disable-tests --disable-installer --disable-crashreporter \ --with-system-zlib --with-system-bz2 --disable-updater \ --disable-libnotify --disable-necko-wifi \ --enable-bundled-fonts --enable-gold \ --with-system-icu --disable-gstreamer \ --disable-strip --enable-install-strip --enable-release --with-system-jpeg \ --disable-elf-hack --disable-jemalloc --disable-dmd 2>&1 > configure-failure.log Actual results: Configure proceeds as per attached log. Then, following is output to terminal, despite that stderr and stdout were redirected: Reticulating splines...

There are multiple issues here as far as I am concerned: 1. Configure should have been successful. 2. autoconf should not need to be installed if I am building from a release tarball 3. Failure output should not go to terminal if output has been redirected.

Ah - the redirection was wrong, so that's my bad; it should of course have been "> configure-fail.log 2>&1" rather than the other way around. However the other two issues stand.
Did you run the command ./configure directly or or ran in through ./mach build. If you ran it directly, try add the same options but in a mozconfig file and then run ./mach build. Tell us what happen then.
I had run ./configure directly. When I do as you suggest, putting all the configure options in the mozconfig file and then run "./mach build", I get the exact same output as I did when I ran ./configure directly (except that each line is now preceded with a blue timestamp).
I've upgrade some components on my system, most notably bash, and this seems to have resolved the problem. 47.0 builds successfully using my original commands. I think you can close this - sorry for the noise.
