Cleaning up bugs in Makefiles, upgrading NDK, etc to help Fennec developers.

There's lots of things possible here, lots of potential for scope creep. Filing to track which things we'll fix now in this phase vs defer to next phase.

per mtg w/ted, khuey, joey, jhford: 

By fixing the dependency-checking in the makefiles, we are not hitting the "-Werror failures" anymore, so removing as dependencies to this phase1 cleanup bug. 

These are still valid bugs to be addressed at a future time, if we ever want to compile those third party components with more strict "-Werror" setting in future, but this is beyond scope of our phase1 cleanup.
per mtg w/ted, khuey, joey, jhford: Dropping bug#745979; people want this because packager is slow, but we've already done a bunch of speedups with the faster packager work in bug#707569.

hwine is more involved here, so happy to grab this one.

There's been no activity on this bug in months. I think Core :: Build Config would be the proper component anyway. Let's just mark RESOLVED?
This is a tracker, and bug 895028 is still open, which is in build config. Any help on that one appreciated.
