sewardj reported hitting this moz.build error:
https://searchfox.org/mozilla-central/rev/152993fa346c8fd9296e4cd6622234a664f53341/mozglue/misc/moz.build#67

Presumably there's just a problem with the configure test for HAVE_CLOCK_MONOTONIC breaking his build, but this really should fail in configure instead of moz.build since the error messages we produce in that case are not very clear.

The configure test is here:
https://searchfox.org/mozilla-central/rev/152993fa346c8fd9296e4cd6622234a664f53341/old-configure.in#1287-1307

Given that that moz.build file only has cases for windows/macos/HAVE_CLOCK_MONOTONIC it seems like we should make configure fail if that test fails.
