Make configure work with clang
Patch attached. Two issues here: 1. clang doesn't completely support using -Wp to pass command-line options to the preprocessor; this patch uses the proper gcc frontend options instead. 2. grepping for a specific response to using -fno-handle-exceptions as an argument isn't really a good idea; since Mozilla hasn't supported g++ 2.8 for a *very* long time, just use -fno-exceptions unconditionally.

This patch works now for a few days without any issues, so I think we can make the same changes to comm-central. So we can also build Thunderbird and SeaMonkey with Clang. I've made this patch by Copy&Paste and tested it with Clang and GCC (on Mac). Is it OK like that?
