#25 Skip GRE, use the zip

I switched from the installer to the zip file once GRE happened. It's a nightmare setting USE_LOCAL_GRE=1 when running a local build, then removing the variable so that the mozilla that was installed by the installer can run. The zip takes care of that, I can have USE_LOCAL_GRE on all the time, and all mozilla's will hapilly find their dlls in their own components directory.

But who knows, I could have been doing something wrong, or missing a step that would have made everything co-exist happily. But even if that is true, there certainly wasn't any usefull documentation on it to help me out.
