Motivation for this change

Clean up derivation, strip away flags that upstream is not happy with (such as --disable-alsa), enable official Thunderbird branding.

Superset of #38943, #36449.

@sylvestre: Could you look at this again?

Section with flags is:

"--disable-tests" # tests require network access
] ++ optional enableCalendar "--enable-calendar"
++ optional enableOfficialBranding "--enable-official-branding"
++ (if debugBuild then [ "--enable-debug"
else [ "--disable-debug"
"--enable-strip" ]);

This has been largely based off Debian mozconfig, including vendored NSS/NSPR. We can't run tests since all builds are sandboxed, and other system libs contain Nix-specific patches.

@yegortimoshenko Is this waiting on review from Mozilla?

@ryantm: the enableOfficialBranding ? true part should work wait for them, I believe. The rest can most likely be done independently.

We did not advance the issue branding by default. @sylvestre: can you suggest how to proceed with that? (I.e. whether it's OK or what's the problem with our current state. Or how to find this out.)

for the record, official branding was enabled in #94880.

@jerith666 could you please tell me who reviewed the nix patches on top of tb?

@jerith666 jerith666 commented Aug 18, 2020

I don't know -- I only noticed #94880 because I had official branding enabled locally and got a merge conflict with it. You've already commented on #94880 so I think you probably know more than I do. :)
