The webvtt dom implementation and parser are a small amount of code. Given the tendency of these build-time switches to bitrot, it's not worth keeping this MOZ_WEBVTT.

Thanks for the review. Turns out I missed an instance in layout/media/Makefile.in. Updating the patch to add this one.

Commit didn't build on inbound. Philor suggested pushing with a clobber update.

Backed out as https://hg.mozilla.org/integration/mozilla-inbound/rev/d757eeebcc43
Relanded with /CLOBBER in https://hg.mozilla.org/integration/mozilla-inbound/rev/f21835504604, filed bug 861579 on needing to clobber.
Turns out what I meant was "oh, look, every single build you got that said it was a clobber failed, probably if you ask khuey about it he'd say 'it's not clear to me how that patch is expected to build at all since it builds media/webvtt after layout/media ...'."

Backed out again in http://hg.mozilla.org/integration/mozilla-inbound/rev/7c09ade1b900

updated patch

You changed the build order and put media/webvtt after layout/media, so when we try to link gkmedias WebVTT isn't built yet, unless we happen to have a copy of it sitting around from the previous build in the objdir.

remove MOZ_WEBVTT.  webvtt dom implementation and parser are a small amount of code.

Move add_tier_dir back to the original location so it's built before layout tries to link it.

Thanks for cleaning up the metadata. I don't think we need to keywords on the bug. MOZ_WEBVTT was never documented on developer.mozilla.org and behaviour won't change until the run-time pref in bug 833385 is flipped in the default build.
