build system leaves some junk in chrome directory

in particular,

  chrome/chromelist.txt
  chrome/{various-dirs}

it seems like make-chromelist.pl is creating chromelist.txt for the benefit of
gerv's patchmaker tool, but i don't see us shipping that with firefox.  i also
don't believe that xulapp authors using xulrunner will want this file.

the various dirs seem to be a byproduct of make-jars.pl.  i think perhaps that
it should delete those dirs after it is finished creating the jar files.

keeping the directory under xpi-stage clean would help xulapp authors package up
their xulapps.  they probably won't easily know how to prune out bits and pieces
of unnecessary cruft, and so they probably will just ship it all which seems
undesirable.

Also see Bug 194045 on empty folders (also i'm not sure if it's the same since i
still see the empty folders on win32).

This bug is old and seems irrelevant to the modern build system.
