 In Tor Browser builds, when we need to rebuild firefox, we do a full
 firefox rebuild. During the development of firefox patches it would be
 useful to be able to do incremental rebuilds of firefox.

 To do that, we could add a new makefile target for this type of build and
 an option in `rbm.local.conf` pointing to the firefox sources directory.
 We would then mount that directory in the build container and use it
 instead of the sources from git.
