Thunderbird build fails "Cannot stat ../../../dist/bin/thunderbird"

On Ubuntu 16.04, with updated mozilla-central and comm-central as of 2019-01-11.

Firefox builds fine, but I keep coming to this issue before and after several updates and clobber builds.

mozconfig stuff from build log

If I 'touch' a file called thunderbird in the output directory, it shuts up the error, and the build says that it completes successfully, but doesn't update the empty file with an executable.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
