How to make a cab installer of Windows Mobile Fennec build

When you finish building Fennec for Windows Mobile, you can ask "How can I install Fennec on my Windows Mobile handset?"

"Where is the installer?"

Fennec build system creates only a zip file in the path of "objdir/mobile/dist".

You might install Fennec using this zip file. But, it is cumbersome. Fortunately, the Fennnec team has released Fennec for Windows Mobile as a cab install.

"How can they make a cab installer?"

If you want to make a cab installer, move to /objdir/mobile/mobile/installer.
And then, run Makefile as follows,

$make installer

If so, you can find a cab installer in the path of "objdir/mobile/dist".
