Description

Over the years we have accumulated binary blobs in the source code/toolchains we take for building Tor Browser. This is the parent ticket to track those issues.

Note: this ticket is *not* concerned with the toolchains/packages that come with the OS we use for building.

There are at least two long-standing issues (#19181, #23045), but probably more. In particular the Android-related ones sound like fun to deal with.
