This suggests a bad merge in browser/app/Makefile.in. Can you check the diff between aurora when it was 20 and beta for that file?
Huh? It's a xulrunner build? Why is the objdir obj-firefox when building xulrunner? this is confusing.
That looks similar to bug 812918, but that's supposed to be fixed.
I think this would fix it.
