New build system for Mozilla environment

Although current mozilla build system uses Cygwin and many tools, Mozilla team seems to replace it with MSYS base system.

As long as I install it, in other word,

Old Mozilla Build System = Cygwin + NSIS + 7ZIP + UPX

New Mozilla Build System = MSYS + NSIS + 7ZIP + UPX + Python

Cygwin replaces with MSYS and add Python script. So I must port NSIS and SCON that is needed to build NSIS.
