So while playing around with bug 167254, I noted that invoking extra shell processes has a signficant impact on our win32 build times. For every Makefile processed during the moz libs pass (~740 of them), we automatically invoke a shell process to do a file detection test for jar.mn. We should see if there's a signficant speedup to be gotten by requiring directories to set JAR_MANIFEST (or CHROME_MANIFEST) rather than attempting auto-detection.
The speedup turned out to be virtually non-existant over the course of the build.
