I have a cron job that scans through all mozilla repos I have checked out and looks in each one for an objdir. For each objdir, it triggers a nightly rebuild of whatever is in the source tree. (Some source trees also autoupdate before this step.) Currently, I have:
0 1 * * * for o in src/*/.hg/../obj*; do ( cd $o && make -j8 -s -k > nightly-build.log 2>&1 ); done
Note that this relies on my own naming convention of $srcdir/obj or $srcdir/obj-*.
However, this breaks when configure.in changes, because I need to re-do a make -f client.mk. And I don't know what mozconfig to use for a given objdir. And I often have multiple mozconfig files lying around, some of them sharing objdirs, so I don't really want to loop over all mozconfigs instead of all objdirs.
Ok, so this is really my own problem, but if client.mk were kind enough to store the mozconfig used, then I could just use that and this would all work.

save a copy of the mozconfig file in the objdir
this keeps a copy of whatever mozconfig file you used in $objdir/.mozconfig
I may be doing it the wrong way and/or using a dumb filename, but this would work for what I want.
