The fix

+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #787568 +++

We should upgrade to clang r161152 to match Firefox, additionally we should add in a check-sync-dirs check that our .manifest files match Firefox, and hence we'll automatically be notified if we miss a change that Firefox is doing (if we really desire to not be in sync for a period, then we can always turn it off or exclude files, but generally best to keep up to date).

I've tested the builds on try server:

Full build, following the fixing of the check sync-dirs test: https://tbpl.mozilla.org/?tree=Thunderbird-Try&rev=db0aa75d073e

A better fix here would be to not have a separate clang manifest, it seems.

If it is reasonable for m-c to not have separate clang manifests per an app, then I think that would be fine, but that doesn't seem to be the case at the moment and I don't know why they were done separate to being with.

I'd obviously do that as a follow-up bug, as at the moment I'd prefer to make sure we're on the same version.

The current limitation is that tooltool can be used for more than just clang, and I don't believe we can remote-include a manifest. The files-to-install per app via tooltool can also vary, and there are legit reasons for that.

So a check-sync-dirs change for TB to match Firefox [and SeaMonkey once we're finally buildable with clang] and actually matching is the best choice for now.

I had to do a follow-up to fix the checksums, as I'd got the wrong set:
