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

That's a bummer. A monolithic build of Icecat 3.6.8 is working fine for
me. Built with gcc 4.4.5. I haven't tried a build of verbatim firefox
but maybe I should do so for comparison.
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've just been looking at the FTBFS of the seed package (bug 569590).
The backtrace I obtained from the lt-seed executable that segfaults
indicates it's bombing out in libwebkit. So I have built webkit with no
optimisation and debugging symbols so I can run a good gdb session on
the problem and now the seed package builds fine! No more segfault in
Guess I had better rebuild webkit with a default Debian build to verify
whether that works or not. I had better exclude the remote possibility
that something relevant has been fixed in gcc/g++ since webkit was built
in the unstable repository.
