Description

Steps to reproduce:
1. Make a simple opt build on Windows
2. Run 'make buildsymbols'

Result:

zip error: Nothing to do! (../firefox-4.0b2pre.en-US.win32.crashreporter-symbols.zip)
make: *** [buildsymbols] Error 12

N.B. this error message can also result from a busted dump_syms.exe (e.g. bug 575519).  But in this case the problem is that I have no pdb files.

Expected:

Something along the lines of "To use 'make buildsymbols', you must put 'ac_add_options --enable-debug-symbols' in your mozconfig and rebuild."
