I have 256MB core, which has been sufficient for all my needs until now. I use Crux partly because it runs efficiently and fast even on old hardware like mine. But I cannot build the new version of Firefox even in single-user mode with nothing else running. I get these errors:

Is there any possibility of getting hold of a binary version that is compatible with the current Crux libraries?
