.exe doesn't get a manifest
Seems like VC10's link.exe wants the manifest to exist in the object directory, not the source directory. Copying the manifest normally, then running make causes the manifest to be embedded (and the manifest file to be deleted :| )
Which manifest? The .manifest file is an *output* of link.exe, not an input. After link runs, we then embed the manifest using mt.exe. Can you paste the build log of what exactly is failing?

What is MSMANIFEST_TOOL? http://mxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/source/config/rules.mk#1047 should be running here, assuming everything is configured correctly.

The logic there seems incorrect, because it first tests for existence in the current directory. That fails, and everything goes downhill from there.
Then you need to port bug 545892 to the HOST_PROGRAM block: normally the linker will generate the .manifest, but apparently in your case it does not.
yeah, that works.
