I've figured out a evil/clever hack to build a spidermonkey-bin in lucid :-)
1) The Debian packaging of xulrunner is completely unrelated to the
2) ... and it still builds js/spidermonkey.
3) js/spidermonkey despite building from the xulrunner source, doesn't
depend on it.
4) Therefore just build the Debian xulrunner source in Ubuntu, having
first hacked out the final building of all the .debs except the
spidermonkey ones :-)
I'll get it into the Launchpad PPA once I've worked around an
architecture-specific bug in make or dash that's causing it to FTBFS on
