At a guess, these build failures are probably indicative of a backend
bug: somewhere, there isn't sufficient waiting for results to arrive
in memory or in registers. Fixing this, if I'm right, will probably
involve finding people with time, detailed knowledge of the mips
platform, and motivation. (However, I'm not ruling out something
simpler: maybe we're treading on a newly-placed library space, or
something; look at /proc/<pid>/maps for emacs, and look for suspicious
overlaps with the spaces in src/compiler/mips/vm.lisp).
