That's good news after several days of "no joy" with firefox builds.
Both 3.5.11 and 3.6.8 segfault in libxul.so on startup, whether built
with gcc/g++ 4.4.5 or 4.2.4.  In one sense, that's probably good: it
means I'm fighting either a library or a binutils issue, because I was
getting good builds with 4.2.4 a few months ago.  I might try rebuilding
the last known good (on my machine) version, which is 3.5.3, just to
rule out anything related to source tree changes.  Schedule is busy over
the next few days, but I'll try to squeeze the build in somewhere before
the weekend gets here.
