 > It seems like it would be better to patch the certutils makefile to
 filter out mwindows rather than add another script and build step...

 Indeed, that probably is a better approach.  I wasn't sure where the flag
 was being set, so I initially went with the Python script in my testing,
 but if it's just something in CFLAGS and LDFLAGS, that shouldn't be too
 hard for me to do.  Would it make sense to filter out -mwindows for all of
 the stuff in the security/nss/cmd directory of Firefox?  I assume all of
 the stuff in that directory is intended to run in console mode always, and
 that way if other NSS command-line tools get added to the mar-tools zip in
 the future, messing with the Makefiles again won't be needed.
