There is another package which fails to build in chroot, but builds just 
fine in normal environment - www/firefox3. The message isn't memory 
related though:

. ./../dist/bin/xpidl -m header -w -I. -I../../dist/idl -o 
_xpidlgen/nsIConsoleListener nsIConsoleListener.idl

** (process:79087): WARNING **: Parse of nsIConsoleListener.idl failed: 
unknown error (9)
make[4]: *** [_xpidlgen/nsIConsoleListener.h] Error 1
make[4]: Leaving directory 
make[3]: *** [export] Error 2

While libgweather has shown similar failures before (at some point it just 
didn't fail any more), firefox3 failure is new and appeared after libc 
changes. Any (I really mean it) ideas?
