We pass different arguments to ./configure than Rubén does when building
the generic pre-compiled IceCat binaries, yes.  In this case, that's the
relevant difference, not any changes to the source code.

We generally stick as close to upstream as we can, although in the case
of IceCat we promptly cherry-pick fixes from upstream Firefox ESR since
most of those fixes are for security flaws, and IceCat releases tend to
lag behind.  As I write this, that includes 176 upstream changesets.
