I've got the mozilla source and configured it to build as Phoenix. It builds, but how do I either dump all of the files necessary into a tarball (like the format of the current nightly builds) or create an installer? Or, a kind of make install to copy the binaries to, say, /usr/local/lib/phoenix?

By the way -- building any Mozilla is hot and toasty on those cold winter nights... ^_~

Just zip up the mozilla/dist/bin directory. That's what we've got at ftp.

Just what I wanted to know. Now, how would one go about finding the options that you guys (Mozilla) pass to configure for the official nightlies?

Well, this is what I have in my .mozconfig (my personal stuff is prefixed with # XXX:

export MOZ_PHOENIX=1
# XXX export DESTDIR=/tmp/phoenix
mk_add_options MOZ_PHOENIX=1
# XXX mk_add_options DESTDIR=/tmp/phoenix
ac_add_options --enable-crypto
ac_add_options --disable-tests
ac_add_options --disable-debug
ac_add_options --disable-mailnews
ac_add_options --disable-composer
ac_add_options --enable-strip
ac_add_options --enable-strip-libs
ac_add_options --enable-optimize="-O2 -march=i686"
# XXX ac_add_options --prefix=/usr
# XXX ac_add_options --with-glib-prefix=/usr
# XXX but HIGHLY RECOMMENDED: ac_add_options --enable-xft
