 in commit 81da10daeaa1c35cb78e22006e63f1f86c68a1a8; however now I see as

 Ha, after looking at the `mach` source code it seems to me that `mach
 configure` treats the options as one if they enclosed in quotes. So, doing
 ./mach configure --with-tor-browser-version=[% c("var/torbrowser_version")
 %] --with-distribution-id=org.torproject --enable-update-channel=[%
 c("var/torbrowser_update_channel") %] --enable-bundled-fonts
 instead should fix this issue...
