control release PGO the same way we control nightly/4hr/perpush PGO builds

Bug 692646 tracks putting MOZ_PGO=1 back into mozconfigs for release builds.

After getting the 8.0b2bld2 respin started, I looked over and realized that there is a better way to control PGO for release builds.  We can safely have MOZ_PGO=1 in the mozconfig while running this patch so we can make a safe transition to having a single way (MercurialBuildFactory's profiledBuild kwarg) for turning PGO on or off.

I have attached a version of my (as yet untested) idea.  This patch has some debugging print statements, and the relevant output for mozilla-beta is:

platform: linux has pgo on
['make', '-f', '', 'build', <WithProperties@0x1036b71b8>, 'MOZ_PGO=1']
platform: linux64 has pgo on
['make', '-f', '', 'build', <WithProperties@0x1036bcdd0>, 'MOZ_PGO=1']
platform: win32 has pgo on
['make', '-f', '', 'build', <WithProperties@0x1036c2f80>, 'MOZ_PGO=1']
platform: macosx64 has pgo off
['make', '-f', '', 'build', <WithProperties@0x1036c5ef0>]

This patch also allows the release config to override both of pgo_platforms and enable_pgo, if that's needed for whatever reason.

This shouldn't be in the release config ever IMO. Releases should inherit their branch's build configuration where possible.

Same as before, but only look at the regular build config.

Putting this bug back in the pool.  This bug can either be WONTFIXed or a version of the patch from comment 2 with the print removed could be landed conceivably.  I'd prefer to WONTFIX this and leave the mozconfig as the canonical source of configuration for release builds.
