Just to add to this, current Firefox mercurial head requires 
sqlite-3.7.2 and also needs the CFLAG -DSQLITE_ENABLE_UNLOCK_NOTIFY=1
I add the CFLAGS to the end of the configure options so that they don't 
get set globally. IE
./configure --prefix=/usr --enable-threadsafe \
   --enable-shared --enable-static --enable-readline \
