I've just noticed that "ac_add_options --disable-crashreporter" is in the book's configuration file. So the build fails even with disabled crash reporter.

By the way, cURL is not listed in optional dependencies.

That's interesting. I'll take a look.

Added cURL to the optional deps as it is not required for current mozconfig. And crashreporter is useless on distro packages - they (Mozilla) only use it in the binaries they provide.

Fixed in r11167
