Wait, what?

They need work to make them simpler and better support cross compiling
for sure, but getting rid of them would really hamper our use of NSS
on different platforms. How would you support that without Makefiles?

'build.sh' uses ninja-build and gyp rather than the Makefiles. I know those 
tools don't have total platform coverage yet, but it's getting close.

What platforms are you using that aren't covered? It's almost certainly easier 
to improve those tools than it is to revamp the Makefiles.

Except Makefiles still work and are how RH builds NSS. I'm sympathetic to how gyp files makes mozilla's life easier, but we get zero benefit from them, so we need a nice long discussion before we 'start to phase out' makefiles.

Please don't make these kinds of decisions and announcements without some concurrence from us.
