if you backout a file, the tinderboxes need to be clobbered to get rid of it, and it can cause all sorts of strange issues.  It'd be nice if it just worked.

This is thankfully simple enough.

Did you really want to remove $(DIST)/dist/bin or just $(DIST)/bin?
Backed out completely: http://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/rev/cb3240bf1d9b

since it turned the Windows boxes (builders, unit testers) red.

I relanded with $(DIST)/bin/components in the hope that that will remove the file we need to remove right now to get Windows green again without having to poke at the Windows machines (and end up with color depth problems, etc., etc.):

Also, if we remove dist/bin, we should remove dist/Firefox.app or whatever the appropriate *.app directory is.
Shawn: are you interested in investigating/fixing this, or would you rather I took it?
It might be better for someone more knowledgeable about the build system to take this.  At this point, I'd be asking you all sorts of questions to fix it... (at least to address comment 10)
