+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #693815 +++

Now that the tracer is disabled we should consider not building it by default, for a small win in binary/installer size.

This looks fine, but I'd rather one of the js people sign off on it.

Matheus, can you measure the binary/installer size win?
I have a local patch that removes the tracer entirely, it was about ~500KB from the js binary on Linux.
I'd like browser-level measurements, before and after :)  I guess it's libxul that will end up smaller?
At least on Windows, libmozjs is still built separate from libxul.
