Note that by default cargo (the rust package manager that is used to
build parts of firefox) will use as many jobs as you have CPUs, so if
you have a large number of CPUs compared to memory this may cause OOM

I fixed this for rust itself in

but we may want to add that to the environment for any package which
uses rust.

This might not be the issue here, but it's worth pointing out.
