Make DEFFILE a Path instead of a string
DEFFILE isn't used in very many moz.build files, but in all but one of the places it is used it's specified as a srcdir-relative path with the ugly construct `SRCDIR + '/file.def'`. Given that, we might as well make it a Path instead of a string, so that srcdir-relative paths just work. This makes my WSL build easier, because I can translate it to a relative path to pass to link.exe.

This is Ted's patch, but rebased and changed so things will build. It *does* rely on the patch in bug 1490054, which is presumably what was causing the previous Windows test failures. Enough bitrot etc. means this is probably worth looking at again.
