Remove MOZ_BITS variable. After you've removed all references to MOZ_BITS == 16, the MOZ_BITS variable is useless.

This is a general cleanup bug that would make maintaining the win32 build system easier.

How about removing MOZ_SRC too?

This is a big ugly patch file, but I think I've removed all instances of 
MOZ_BITS. All of it needs to be doublechecked. The only c file is 
mantomak.c - I did that one quickly, so it might not be correct.

Also, not sure about C:\mozilla\gconfig\UNIX.mk

Total of 98 files, 274 occurrences of MOZ_BITS 
and nearby stuff removed.

(This does not address MOZ_SRC, only MOZ_BITS)

bug cleanup - all leaf's bugzilla bugs should be assigned to leaf@mozilla.org
(not leaf@netscape.com), now and any future bugs created.

this should be a one time change, apologies for the spam.

Marking wontfix. MOZ_BITS is now used in the autoconf system, and could
conceivably be used someday in the science-fictiony future of windows on 64 bit
platforms becoming commonplace.

NSS use USE_64=1 to create a build for 64-bit Windows.
}
Maybe m-c will eventually want to do it like that too?
