Description

10 years ago
The empty file 
   mozilla/security/manager/.nss.checkout
gets generated every time I build a fresh mozilla-central tree.

dbaron tells me that this file is just used as a flag that's generated to indicate whether we should build NSS, or something like that.

This file isn't being ignored by Mercurial, and that's bad.
e.g. suppose I edit some files and then do a "hg add".  hg captures my changes *including* the creation of the .nss.checkout file.

IMHO, we should add this file to the hgignore list, to avoid headaches / accidental incorporation into mercurial repos.

This fixes it, though I'm not sure if the explanatory comment is 100% accurate.
