Description

We disabled JS-Ctypes as part of #6152. Unfortunately, it broke a key component of Torbutton (#9790). Since we need to fix that and get a F17.0.9 release out ASAP, we need to re-enable ctypes for now until we can fix that and/or #9276.

As Mike said:

We want to disable ctypes at compile time in TBB for sandboxing reasons
