Hi Paul,

Thank you! You saved my bacon.

May be a problem with either Ubuntu updgrade or install procedure for SpiderMonkey, since
all worked fine prior to taking those steps.

Loaded libtool. That fixed Firefox.

Be good to know what killed Firefox. But I'm not savvy enough to figure it out.

./configure complained about a few other missing files, which I loaded. It finally killed
me with note that my version of Erlang is not up-to-date. Guess this means that I have to
compile Erlang from source which makes me very uncomfortable. Taking off my apt-get training
wheels is a bit terrifying, not least because of the kinds of problems I've had loading couchdb.

But I guess this is life at the bleeding edge.

Many thanks again,
