End of the Thunderbird build log
I was trying to compile the Thunderbird trunk from source code. It failed with the error shown in the attached build-tail.log. Further analysis indicates a crash in /usr/bin/ld.gold (binutils-18.104.22.168.1-9.fc19.x86_64). I've attached a backtrace of the trash. I'm filing it by hand rather than with ABRT because ABRT fails to analyze the backtrace (I filed a separate bug about that).

Backtrace from /usr/bin/ld.gold
NVM, the problem was that I have a 6GB memory limit set on processes when I'm logged in, and this particular ld invocation actually required more than 6GB of RAM. Lovely.
