Build Identifier: http://releases.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/releases/4.0b11/source/firefox-4.0b11.source.tar.bz2

When I try building firefox 4.0b11 from source on mipsel, build/unix/elfhack/elfhack -b test.so aborts with the message:

"build/unix/elfhack/elfhack -b test.so
test.so: No gain. Aborting"

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Download firefox 4.0b11 source code from http://releases.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/releases/4.0b11/source/firefox-4.0b11.source.tar.bz2.
2. tar -xjf firefox-4.0b11.source.tar.bz2
3. cd mozilla-central
4. cp browser/config/mozconfig .mozconfig
5. ./configure
6. make
Actual Results:  
/home/christophe/gnewsense/dev/metad/icecat/firefox/mozilla-central/build/unix/elfhack/elfhack -b test.so
test.so: No gain. Aborting
# Fail if the backup file doesn't exist
[ -f "test.so.bak" ]

Expected Results:  
make runs without error.
