Am going for it.
--enable-mozilla now means enable mozilla address book driver on windows
--with-mozilla-build will be renamed to --with-nss-build (although nss is  
coming from mozilla, and then, we still downlaod from mozilla.org :)
--with-nss-build is required on windows if --enable-mozilla is on and  
--with-system-nss is off.

Other switches and related variables will be cleaned.

IIUC, with_system_nss = yes is used for all but Win [1]. Could we try to  
use the ones provided with any install of firefox under windows ?
