Details

$(FINAL_TARGET) is created as part of export in rules.mk (https://mxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/source/js/src/config/rules.mk#1301). This needs to be changed if we are to eliminate the export tier.

Since only a directory is being created, this may magically go away once all simple installs are performed in install manifests (bug 890097). Just tracking it here so there is a bug on every export target.
In fact, if everything in $(FINAL_TARGET) is installed with nsinstall, we don't need the rule at all. nsinstall creates the target directory when it doesn't exist.
