User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.6; rv:5.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/5.0 Build Identifier: I spent a good deal of time trying to figure out why my builds weren't working as expected, when I realized that my MOZCONFIG environment variable was actually pointing to a nonexistent file, and the build was just using its default options. I feel that the build system should highlight this error instead of defaulting silently. Reproducible: Always

Nope. If _config is not defined, then we should look for the mozconfig file in the default places like ~/.mozconfig. But if it is defined _and_ points to a file that doesn't exist, then we should throw an error.
My bad, I read another ! in there because that's what I expected.
this broke my pymake builds of Thunderbird. For those builds, I set MOZCONFIG to /c/builds/<tree>/mozconfig, which was working earlier.
Does it not work to set MOZCONFIG=c:/builds/<tree>/mozconfig?
(In reply to comment #8) > Does it not work to set MOZCONFIG=c:/builds/<tree>/mozconfig? No, it fails the same way: g --disable-optimize --enable-chrome-format=jar --enable-application=../mail --d isable-official-branding --with-branding=../mail/branding/nightly --cache-file=. ././config.cache --srcdir=../../mozilla ../../mozilla/./build/autoconf/mozconfig2configure: line 118: Specified MOZCONFI G "../.mozconfig" does not exist!: No such file or directory configure: error: ../../mozilla/configure failed for mozilla It's odd that it's looking for ../.mozconfig - maybe it's an issue that Thunderbird builds out of <tree>/mozilla
Also breaks for me using a relative configure i.e. invoking ../configure with my mozconfig living in my srcdir so not actually specified in $MOZCONFIG.
Strange, running MOZCONFIG=/c/Users/Sid/mozilla/comm-central/.mozconfig-opt ../configure works fine for me with an updated mozilla-central.
So ... do we need to back this out our not?
