_DIRS for delayed building of tools until libxul is available
I've been trying to get most of tier 9 into libxul, and a basic problem is that we build all sort of tools during the build, which need to link against XPCOM, except that XPCOM is not available yet. The solution is to add a TOOL_DIRS variable. If you are building "libs", the TOOL_DIRS won't get built. Then a later step "make tools" will build all the tools+tests after the XPCOM dll is available.
this sounds reasonable to me.
Fixed on trunk.
