Comment (by gk):

 One thing we should do in the final revision, I think, is to not symlink
 every tool we need individually (right now it is just `llvm-readobj`) but
 do something like Martin does:
     for exec in ar ranlib nm objcopy strings strip; do
         ln -sf llvm-$exec$EXEEXT $arch-w64-mingw32-$exec$EXEEXT || true
 Rust, e.g. is complaining about a missing `x86_64-w64-mingw32-ar` and we
 probably can simplify our `mozconfig` as well that way (assuming `RANLIB`
 is just necessary because we don't symlink properly in the first place).
