Details

The x86_64 Linux tinderboxes are missing the wireless-tools-devel package, which means they can't build the Necko Wifi code, used for geolocation.

Prior to bug 503597, this caused the feature to be silently disabled (thus silently disabling one of our major new platform features).  With bug 503597, this (as desired) results in an error so that we don't accidentally disable major platform features.

What needs to be fixed is (thanks to bug 505203 / bug 505204) equivalent to Version 16 in https://wiki.mozilla.org/ReferencePlatforms/Linux-CentOS-5.0#Version_16

I suppose I'll have to temporarily back out bug 503597 until this is fixed.
I'll take care of this in a bit. I filed bug 505232, which should help prevent things like this in the future.

Could you also remove the config.cache file from the relevant build trees? Otherwise configure caches that the header was not present, and fails again (now that I relanded the patch).
